While I'm nervous about what an incredibly early spring this seems to be, I've decided that I might as well just go along for the ride - heaven only knows that I certainly can't slow it down!
The first yellow crocuses started peaking through several weeks ago and, by now, many of the whites and creams have joined them.
The third group I photographed are just assorted modern crocuses, but they are some of the ones that we have naturalized in the grass throughout the yard. They come up a little more strongly every year and it's a lot of fun to see the variety contained within their ranks.
If you are interested in checking into heirloom bulbs, I've been using Old House Gardens, which is based out of Michigan. I've been extremely pleased with their descriptions and information, their service, and (especially) their products. I've heard great things about Brent & Becky's Bulbs in Virginia, too, but I've never actually ordered from them. They have so many varieties that I get a little overwhelmed when I visit their site!
I've got some buds on a few of my smaller daffodils, 6" tall foliage on many others, tulip leaves looking strong and healthy, and even hyacinth leaves that are 3" tall. The next few weeks should be bright and beautiful!
