Search for Crocus

Only 7 days until daylight saving time – 13 days to spring.

Snow is two feet high where we shoveled it on piles but soil is beginning to appear in sunny spots. So where are the crocuses?
Some tiny little crocus leaves can be spotted if you look hard enough.


The daffodils are poking through the soil.

Snow drops are opening everywhere.


And then - one crocus bloom!

If I don't get snow drops planted in 2010, then there must be something wrong with me. We're also starting to see a few patches of grass and soil here and there.

Thanks for sharing your crocus bloom. Makes me happy to see it.

What sweet little crocus blooms! Mighty impressive snow banks too! Hope they are melted soon.

Hi MG,
We still have a few snow piles left but they are rapidly disappearing. Above freezing weather and rain the rest of this week should take care of that.

I have been excited to see the crocus, daff and tulip foliage...I'll be thrilled when the blooms actually appear;-) What a thrill!

Jan,
The sight of new growth is energizing! I imagine all northern gardeners are wandering around outside searching for new growth.
