I about tripped over myself this afternoon as I was saying goodbye to my family who'd come to visit me for the day because as I looked down at the ground to turn and shut the door --- there poking up from the mulch were the bright and happy leaves of my crocuses breaking ground and popping up! They are already almost two inches tall!
I cried outloud and am pretty sure I freaked out my family who thought something was wrong! :)
Oh happy day!! Now if the weather would just warm up a little more...
I checked around for my daffodils too, but it is still too early for them! But at least with the crocuses coming up I can see some light at the end of the this dark tunnel called winter.
