I know this picture is a bit blurry---I'm NOT a photographer but I just wanted to share.

These little flowers just made me happy.

Nice little flowers. My daphne is full of blooms and I think this week's warmth is going to make it bloom. It will be the first time this daphne made it to March with healthy buds.

I also was surprised last week to find the crocus in bloom. Mine were variety "Blue Pearl" which are far from blue, but are sort of pearly looking.

I was even more surprised and more than a bit ticked-off this week to find about a dozen of them pulled up by the roots. Not eaten, just pull up and spit out. Leaves were a bit mangled, but corms were intact. I replanted them, though they will be horribly set back even if they do survive.

George---I'm sorry to hear that-----Some critters can do a lot of damage-----

I have little single purple crocus all over my yard. They are so pretty.

I have some big orange ones. Nothing makes me happier than seeing them peeking up! My purples aren't up yet though. I wonder why.........Dawn
