Title says it all... Been pumping the last couple days and tried to look again today and could actually pull the needle net up a bit in the one corner and to my surprize I saw these little guys! Very excited!!! Looks like I'll have a spare of that sarr for you after all jay, seams to have made it this far! Thanks Sib
lol I don't think I'm anywhere near there yet but I'm thrilled to see life instead of mush! The real test will be the oposite end where the rubras and flavas live, thats considereably wetter, but gives me hope so yeah here it is "You were right" hehe Sib

Told ya so... Glad to hear that your collections are doing well... My poor ol' bog is still under 5 feet of snow. Can't even see the top of the "fence posts" around it yet. I wonder if my outdoor CP can withstand 18 months of dormancy as it looks like Summer might just pass us by this year
I wish that this white crap would go away so I can at least finish digging the hole for the bog's relocation this year, but the long range forecast still shows cold until the end of the month at least.
Well I guess it will be mid april before i can uncover it and get a good idea of what damage if any i'll be dealing with... But seeing some alive gives me good hope for it. We've had a very wet winter! And a big mix of warmer and wet weather aswell as some bitter cold with lots of snow! This is by far the most snow i've seen in along time here. Usually snow fall here is like 2" and gone in two days... so not the case this year. Can't wait for spring! Sib

dvg: These late March snow storms are easier to digest than the mid-May wintry blasts that do so much damage to the trees

insectivore: Agreed! we got a good 10-12 inches but the warm days are taking care of it!!

dvg: That was a decent dump of snow!

dvg: With the days now longer than the nights and the noonday sun rising higher in the sky each day, it won't be long before winter is just an afterthought
