The Crocus Are Always First

Saw the first bloom of 2014 outside in the garden today.  A crocus, as to be expected.

We've gotten so warm the last few days that the snow is melting fast.


  1. Oh, how lucky are you! Such a sweet little bloom!

  2. Though I LOVE my snow, what a treat to see a bloom---it's lovely! Enjoy!!
    : )

  3. GoSS, my Spring has arrived indicator is the blooming crocus as well. There is no such indication as of yet here in Nebraska. Although the promise of a 60 degree day this next week has been predicted by the weather forecasters. It gives me a glimmer of hope that the long cold winter just might be coming to an end.

    My list of spring projects is as long as my arm and growing. The last month before gardening begins is always the most difficult to endure, don't you think?

    Have a great Crocus blooming day.

  4. Oh lucky girl to have your first bloom. My crocus are sleeping under a foot of snow and I am looking forward to some melting this week with the warmer temps. Have a great week.

  5. You're way ahead of us. We're just now getting rid of the snow cover.

  6. What a stalwart bloom! It cheers my heart after this hard winter. Thank you.

  7. Lucky you! I keep checking mine but so far they are no shows.

  8. Ahhh---can't wait til some of our Crocuses bloom.. We have some popping up along with some Hyacinths and Daffodils... BUT--winter is not finished with us yet since it's supposed to get cold again next week....

    Love your little Crocus... SO pretty.

  9. While we won't see our first blooms quite yet, I am tickled that other places are getting their first ones. It means spring is on its way!
