First Flowers of Spring!!!



I spent two hours doing clean up work in the garden, and then I noticed that the crocus had started blooming in my little crocus patch that I planted by the driveway. These are Snow Bunting crocus that I bought from Old House Gardens. This is in a sunny south facing spot under the dining room bay window. I thought it would be a good place for crocuses. We got about 6 inches of snow on Monday (Mar 31), but it was sunny and warm on April 1 and all the snow had melted on this patch by the time I got home from work. I noticed that these were the first flowers coming up. Now, there are even more crocus coming up.



I've also been working on my Kureyon sock.

Nice! We're finding out that the previous resident of our house planted nothing. Not a thing is coming up, so we will be busy planning some flowers and herbs for our yard soon.
