first spring flowers

Finally - just two weeks behind last year. I have recorded bloom dates for this little clump of crocus for the past 20 years, and the dates vary from March 14 (last year) to April 11. So I guess that makes this year just about average. I can't expect hostas for a while yet, but the robins are back in town and the cardinals are singing. Life is good.
Happy Easter to all.

Jan, my Crocus this year have never been mor gorgeous with golden yellow and purple blooms. I have patches over 6" in diameter of solid color. :o) I am afraid I haven't taken a picture because it has been so cold and tommorow when it will be warm they will be beyond their prime.
I love it when they appear but it is usually throught snow. I still live in what I feel is a drought region which most of you may find hard to imagine. The only snow that was significant lasted only 2 days. My monthly total of precipitation is less than 2 inches, and the Jan/Feb total less than than 2 ". All moisture has passed either North or South of me for the past 2 years.
Never the less, Crocus make my heart go pitter patter (I must truly be getting old. LOL)
