First Color

in the yard, other than green, that is. It rained last night and the temperature rose to 78 (!) today. These popped out.

Yea, rah! Spring!

Pretty little - what is the plural of crocus? ...Did you ever hear the one about the Latin professor who goes in to a bar...

Grace, I have always favored "croci" but I see that "crocuses" is now listed first in most dictionaries. Anyway, I am just happy they are here.

Dang! I have blooming snowdrops, but no crocus yet. Ugh. I think they are messin' with me.

Isn't it great! I like the crocus as they are harbinger of things to come. Soon the hyacinths and snowdrops will appear. I'm already seeing the snowdrops.

Yeah, rah, indeed! But 78? Too hot already!

vanilla said...

Lin, patience. Until yesterday, I thought they were messing with me, too.

Chuck, Spring is a marvel of resurrection, is it not?

Shark, 78 and I'm lovin' it. btw, re your comment to Lin: crunchy, exactly. Has to be.
