First Crocus bloom Jan 27

In the  cold fall months faithful gardeners plant spring blooming bulbs, coming inside to warm their cold-numbed hands between the bags of bulbs and corms that have to go into the ground.

When the Crocus bulbs begin to bloom in January and February no matter how cold and snowy the weather, we get our reward.

If you did not get any Crocus bulbs in last fall, put them on your calendar for Oct-Nov 2015 planting. Their tiny flowers are guaranteed to bring a smile in late winter-2016.
