Jonathan has been keeping an eye on all of the spring flowers that have been poking out of the ground the last couple of weeks and yesterday he discovered that the crocus are in bloom again! He was so excited to make the discovery that he had to drag me over to them to take a look.
I really do love crocus. They are the first things to bloom in the spring at our house and it means that warmer weather is on the way. I don't have nearly enough, however. I would love to cover my whole yard in the bright yellow and purple show stoppers, but haven't quite gotten around to it yet.
When my husband and I moved into the first house we purchased together, we covered the hill in our front yard with crocus. We even had strangers stop to tell us how pretty it was! They are so maintenance free and when they are done blooming, it is usually time to mow the lawn for the first time, so I love putting them in the yard!
Maybe I'll tackle that project in the fall, right now I must start laying out the plans for the vegetable garden, and I need to enjoy the crocus that is here now!
