Roberto, I think it's neat how some of your pics. in the last round show the stems coming out from the cracks in the dirt. Something very primordial about those two pics. . Like how that contrasts with the bright colors of the flowers.

I don't think the actual pancy plants survived the winter. Maybe grew from the seeds. I dunno for sure, ask the boss.

I didn't comment on my own , the boss told me and I just type it. The pancy are annuals , from seeds of course , but those ones somehow survived thru winter . Don't ask me how , but the mild winter in combination with recent warm temperatures may be the factor . Now we are back to seasonal temperatures , which the cocruses like , and the progress will take a slower pace.

Thanks . I am trying to get good pics and the older ones look terible. I still learn how to use the digital camera , don't laugh at me.
The pushing is happening all over , but is hard to get it right on pics . Looks something like these .....

The problem comes when all the plants think it's mid spring and then we get 2 nights in the 20s. I used up all my old dropcloths and sheets covering things. At least my cherry trees were slow to bloom so they are mostly undamaged. However, I heard most of Michigan lost its tart cherry crop and a number of local apple orchards had 90% destruction. Expect to pay more for fruit this year.
