This week brought a lovely warm spell to my home, coaxing out the first fresh green leaves on a young tree in the backyard. The bud burst has begun!
While happily trying my best to capture some images of these first leaves for you, I stumbled upon another early springtime wonder: the croci. But they aren’t at all where I expected them to be! I found the purple crocus popping up out of some leaf litter just beside the driveway. The surrounding greenery is some type of ground cover, the name of which I do not yet know.
In the mean time, I have huge patches of swelling flower bulbs just aching to open – and I have no idea what they are. My best guess is that they might be some type of small daffodil. It would be grand if they were hyacinth, but the greens look too short. Then again, at this point, I’d believe ANYTHING is possible! Stay tuned!
