First Crocus

Wow! The garden is really ahead of schedule. Crocus Romance is in full bloom one full month ahead of last year. Romance first bloomed two days ago.

I love these buttery yellow blooms. Remarkably, the squirrels have not touched them. I can't say that about all my crocus. Critter damage is apparent in some selections that are still emerging. Maybe the squirrels don't like yellow. I, on the other hand, am loving it! Bring on spring.

Just love them.
I haven't had much luck with crocus, but just today was thinking that I should try again next spring. I have just 5 or 6 coming up of the 100 or so that I planted 5 years ago.
