  1. So delicate with the striations of color…prettiest ones I have ever seen.

    • Thank you, Rickii πŸ˜‰ I agree with you on that. The bulbs came from my favorite family run garden shop several years ago. One of those early December impulse buys when the bulbs go on sale…. Such little treasures! See, your comment came through properly this time πŸ˜‰ I think we have it fixed ❀

  2. Ours are all but gone here in the UK now, WG. To be honest, they did not do very well this year, much the same as the daffodils, whereas the Snowdrops were at their very best.

    • Well, I’m glad the snowdrops did well. Was it too warm for the Crocus and daffodils? They need a long cool season to last long here. Wonderful to hear from you πŸ˜‰ WG

      • I’m not sure, WG. Last Winter was very mild, and Crocus and daffodils did quite well. This Winter has been colder ,but not for long periods of time, and we’ve not had the storms like the previous winter which was also very wet.
        I feel disappointed that we seem not to be getting the wonderful displays which we had last Spring, but at least the Snowdrops put on a brilliant show for us.

  3. HURRAY!!! You must be so delighted to see these little beauties! Do they make you feel like dancing through a meadow? I’m so happy you have found a first sign of Spring, WG ❀ ❀

    • Thank you, Jane πŸ˜‰ This whole (very shady) area just opened up with blooms this week. It is especially nice to find early spring blossoms where you’ve forgotten there are bulbs! That made these a doubly wonderful surprise. My dance through the garden yesterday was burdened with a heavy sucker/blower to vacuum up and shred the millions of leaves which have gathered over winter. Now most of the beds are free of their leafy winter blanket, and I’m happy to see all of the new growth which can now reach for the sun πŸ˜‰ Thank you for visiting, Jane ❀ ❀

  4. Very pretty, no crocus here but I have creeping phlox blooming!! πŸ™‚ yea!!!
