The crocuses are up

I noticed them on Sunday. There is a single yellow crocus poking up in the bare dirt where I saw and split firewood. I'm trying not to trample it. Out back, in the grass among the cyclamen, I counted at least eight purple crocuses blooming in the sunshine.

Two purple crocuses adding a little color to the lawn out by the well.

In other parts of the lawn, the primroses are blooming. I also see the daffodils, tulips, and hyacinths are up. We're still a few weeks from flowers on those..

  3. Don't get shot of the Yellow crocus...
    dig it up with a good rootball and move it into the lawn.

  6. Saw my first blooming daffodil Monday. Our Lenten roses are blooming now, but look like they didn't appreciate their winter this year!
