MorelMargaret, I'm in your neck of the woods as well (Iowa City)....my guess is.we're at least 10-14 days out yet based on this week's weather forecast. We need those 3-4 consecutive 70 degrees to get our ground temps up. IF this moisture keeps up we could have a good season if our temps hold!!!!!!

Ironmaiden....from what I have learned over the years, it all depends on whether it is cold rain or warm rain, and how much it affects soil temps. Hope this helps.

Went out just now. Nothing at the super spot I had last year. A spot is usually good 2 or 3 years. The Dutchman's Britches (flower) leaves are up, no flowers yet. That's always been an indicator. Think the may apples (another plant usually out beginning of May) are just poking up to unroll. Maybe this weekend. Can't wait! Supposed to get in the 70's end of week.

I'm hoping they start popping around here (CR) or at least nearby pretty soon. Gotta have surgery on the left shoulder in May and don't wanna have to have help LOL. Would like to have someone to hunt with, my spots & yours. Or new one?
