Just noticed a new arrival in the backyard:

Newly-sprouted crocus

Click it to big it. And here are three more, if you like:

Winter is hell, isn't it?

What color?

What color are those tulips?

Brendan Keefe said...

I think those are crocuses (that is a crocus?), not tulips. No flowers yet, in any case.

Brendan Keefe said...

Hard to tell scale from the picture, at least without making assumptions about the evergreen twig, but those upshoots are only about 3" tall. Truly just appeared.

Ocean said...

Ah, you can now figure that I like tulips a lot more than crocuses.

I've seen my irises and sedums starting to sprout in my yard. Spring is around the corner.

I do expect to see tulips elsewhere in the yard a little later this year.

Not sure I want to pick which I like better.
