  1. 2012 must have been really warm for 1/30! Congrats on your first crocus!

  2. Hurray for you. It must be so exciting to see that first bloom every year.

    Enjoy and have a lovely Valentine's week ~ FlowerLady

  3. Oh my!
    I couldn't even IMAGINE a crocus for at least TWO more MONTHS.
    Lucky lucky you. And thanks for sharing. I had forgotten what color is!!!!
    (Think a thousand shades of grey up here!)

  4. You do like me! We have our first crocus blooms here too. And over the last several years the timing is just about average. So exciting spring is near. I bet you can't wait!

  5. How exciting! It was so warm here yesterday that I wouldn't have been surprised to see a crocus trying to make an appearance, but we're back to winter again today. It's always a treat to see these first harbingers of spring.

  6. GonSS, I love Crocus. They lead the way in the Spring with the first flowers of the year. We had such a weird year last year, mine didn't flower. I'm hoping they are still alive and flower this year. I love the Spring flowers. Tulips, Daffodils, Peonies, and Iris are all Spring to early summer flowers I totally enjoy. I'm so envious of your Crocus flowering time and am hopeful to see mine in about another month. My zone is 5B but has been very extreme with weather the last couple years so it's always a guess when the Spring flowers are going to start growing.

    Have a great Crocus flowering day.

  7. Signs of spring. It will be another month before we see one. This coming fall I need to buy more bulbs. It's like a miracle seeing them come up thru the snow.

  8. Wonderful! We're still a couple of weeks away from having any crocus in bloom.

  9. That is neat that you keep track of the first crocus. We have too much snow to see if there are any under there.
