Last year we had an early Spring in upstate New York. That was followed by a week of hard freeze. My daffodils were fooled and what did bloom was a very poor show. I fear we may be sin the same state this year, but it may be worse. After almost 3 weeks of weather well above freezing in February, we plunged back to bitter cold. Today, March 6, its 56º. The daffodils are about 4" high. I am hoping that the iris will not be badly affected. A friend at the Western New York Iris Society yesterday said that she has seen damage already. I can't bear to look at what has happened to some of my newer varieties, especially Japanese and Pseudata.
