Yay!! If the snow stays off them they'll perk up in no time. There's a nice amount of them to create a display.

They look better than mine ever have. Mine come up but never flower at all, not much better than a tuft of grass!

At least you can see your crocuses, klm! And they'll perk up if it ever gets warmer.... Bah...if!! We're still hovering around the freezing mark...

It was sunny but, very cold today.

Fortunately for the crocus', they face the southside of the house so they got the warmth today and popped back out.

I just wish this cold spell will snap...SOON!!!

Well, at least we don't have a lot of mud here yet.

I have to agree with TQ. My bulbs are barely covered underground yet multiply every year.

Once their done, I turn the soil to prep for summer impatients and the bulbs all come to surface. I really don't pay too much attention to them but I seem to get more and more every year.

It figures. I try to be all gentle and not disturb them when I plant the annuals, just my luck it's not what they want! Once they show themselves, I'll make sure they're right at the surface, maybe next year I'll get a flower or two.
