Where I live the first to always seem to pop out of the frozen earth are the daffodils, then the Bradford Pear trees, forsythia and then come the peach orchards in bloom. What plants or flowers bloom first where you live? Thank you for answering.

Hi Genna, Oh, poor dear, I know you are all tired of the frozen! Hope it melts soon and you see some color. Blessings
Oh, I bet it is gorgeous. Yes, it was beautiful, sunny and warm here too. I know you can't wait but healing is most important now. Maybe you can sit out in the sun a bit each day.
Hi Yvonne, Oh, I love cherry trees! I had forgotten about the snowballs but I have not seen any here yet. Thank you for answering.
Hi MizB, Thanks for answering. That is so interesting that everywhere it seems all the same plants and flowers are in bloom. Yes, they could be next!
Hi Brian, Thank you for answering. Yes, it seems the daffodils are in a hurry to bloom even when it is not quite warm enough. I am not sure about wildflowers either.
Thank you so much. Yes, they do not last long. The forsythia seems to be everywhere.
Which one does not last long? The dandelion is short lived but it 'blows' away when it dies and starts new ones. It keeps coming and going I forget how many times.
The dandelion will blow away as you stated but it does come back!
It blows away again and when it blows away it goes into someone elses yard. Then you get blamed.
LOL, yes, it does do that ... some do consider it a weed, but it actually has some good benefits that I read of once in a hub somewhere.
My brother mows my lawn and only the front. The back is full of trees, etc., cannot be mowed. Otherwise I would do it before they died and maybe save them for the benefits.
Maybe you can mention it to your brother and see if he will try to save some?
I doubt it. To him they are weeds and he wants to get the job done.
Oh, LOL, ... well, I'm sorry.
Hi Kathleen, That sounds about just like here but I just happened to not have seen the crocus yet. I think we are done with winter and, yes, we certainly got off easy! Thank you for answering.
Hi Sparklea, I know you are looking forward to all of the wonderful blooming plants and flowers you have mentioned. I can't image snow still on the ground! Brrr. It has been so warm, sunny and beautiful here. I hope you see a robin soon. God bless
Hi Debra, Oh, I am so sorry about your allergies. Sounds like about all are having the same in bloom right now no matter where they live, interesting.
Yes. they all seem t be coming out at the same time. I think it is the sun or amount of light and not so much the air temps or water, i.e. rain, snow, ice or sleet.
I think you're right. They are all coming out now. So beautiful!
