First Flower of 2012

Today is really unseasonably warm for us.  It's 70 degrees currently.

As I explored the garden, I found a white crocus.



The first flower of 2012.

  1. I certainly hope this is just a fluke. Can you imagine what summer would be like if it's 70 in January?
    The flower is lovely. Now tell it to "go back to bed"!

    1. I tried telling it that. We'll see if it listens.

  5. What a sweet little bloom for January. I wonder if 'any' winter weather will still happen in the next few months. Enjoy your mild winter.

  6. Yeah for flowers already! I can't wait for it to be 70 here, most likely that won't be until April or May.

  7. Well you know what it means when you see crocuses right? Spring has sprung!

    1. It can't be spring yet. I'm sure we have a cold blast in our future still. February is our coldest month typically.

  8. It's been crazy here, too, again. Supposed to be 60 degrees tomorrow!! We can enjoy the little crocus anyway. ;-)

  9. Oh, I poked around from afar. .but not up close anywhere. .I will have to check. .I think I put some crocus bulbs in last winter too. I know that all those bulbs will be poking through soon!! We had a gorgeous day here too. .Cami and I took a stroller walk around our "track" And cleaned out the bluebird houses! Hard to believe spring will be here soon!!

    Here in south UK we are only just getting the daffs and crocus tips showing. It's particularly cold today.

  13. How pretty and surprising.Gardeners are reporting flowers coming up and blooming lately way before they are suppose to.

  14. OH, I feel like such a killjoy, but that's actually rather depressing to me. We are WAY too warm (and dry) this year...and that's on top of years of warmth based on average temperatures. It makes me fear that global warming is truly upon us. The geological record shows that even major shifts (like the predicted changes due to global warming) can occur as rapidly as a decade. This is sure one of those cases where I really, really hope that I'm wrong.

    1. It is way too warm, way too early. Suppose to be a winter storm with blowing snow for us Friday/Saturday. We'll see.
      I'm appreciating the warmer days to do some garden clean up and pruning but I hope it snows (or rains, rain would be good).
