Let the gardening season begin. The first blooms have arrived. This crocus was fastest out of the gate (I think it is the exact same crocus that was first to bloom last spring too. Could that be possible?) There are lots more crocus waiting in the wings. I moved them around last fall so the bulbs would be more closely grouped together. I hope this makes a bigger statement in the garden (as big a statement as two dozen or so crocus can make.)
The snowdrops are new to the garden this year. So far, so good. I'm pretty sure I only planted a handful of these but with a little luck they will go on to multiply happily. There are a few days to go on the calendar until we reach that special date that's so important to gardeners. Right now though, thanks to these small blooms, I'm feeling that spring is finally here.
