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.

Mmmm, crocuses. Thanks for sharing the pix.

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.
