Look Who's Up

I spotted this little fella poking his head up through the grass by the edge of the driveway. Big deal. It's a crocus, right? Right, but normally this would still be buried under a couple of two or three feet of snow! We had an unusually mild Winter in the Northeast. No complaints, mind you. And Spring seems to have arrived early as well. Temps were close to 70 yesterday! Still not complaining. Wonder if we'll be in for an April Fool's Blizzard? Ceej knocks wood three times before she jinxes the weather.

What's it like in your neck of the woods?


  1. It has been a very odd winter here too. I have yellow crocuses up that will fully bloom today. I always take a picture the first day they open. The last two years were March 24 and 29. Do your crocus bloom one color at a time? I have 3 colors and yellow is first.

    I also have hyacinth, tulips and daffodils about an inch tall.

    I'm kind of waiting for an April Fool's blizzard too.

  2. I only saw two, little purple ones

  3. Beware the ides of March! (and April blizzards!)

  4. Daffodills,Crocus and Primrose everywhere, bright and cheery to say that winter is over.
    To think that we moved here for the milder winters, this is the first mild winter this area has seen since we moved here!
    OK, we are in Cornwall in the South West of England famed here for its early growing season!
