The Crocus are up!!!!

The crocus in my yard are up!!!!




Also, this plant is now flowering for the first time ever! It's like a rhododendron but tiny and with pale green/yellow flowers. It's a native plant and I think it may be some sort of Laurel, but I can't find it in my books.

Was the groundhog right?

If the crocus are up in Canada, then there is hope! This winter has been too much of a deep freeze for my southern bones, even here in Tennessee.

Thanks Cameron, makes me feel like spring is just around the corner. Even tho it will still be another 5 to 6 weeks for us here. We usually see the Dafodills first, must be the altitude? This could be the start of a great thread for spring flowers...thanks again..
Mike

Hope springs eternal! Your photos made me smile, really big, this morning, though it's +3 degrees with a windshill of -14 outside. My bulbs were up several inches around Christmas time, oops! Now they are shriveled brown stumps. Oh well, they'll spring back like the Phoenix next week when we hit 50's again. Thanks for the cheery blossoms ~G

We've got a few weeks (maybe months at this rate) before our CROCI come up - some are even SNOW CROCI, but the won't get tall enough to poke their heads through 2 feet of snow. I fear that those in Oswego NY won't come up until JULY!!!

Thanks for the pictures!!!
