What a difference a year makes! Last year, I was posting about my first crocus sighting of the year on May 12th, and here we sit, in mid-April, and my favourite Prairie haunt, Nose Hill, is covered in the purple beauties. Feast your eyes on SPRING!
The horticultural crocuses in my flowerbeds have been blooming for nearly three weeks now. These are a variety called ‘Easter Egg,’ and I’ve had them for so long that the junipers have clamboured over and around them. Time to lift the corms this year and move them. I also have a handful of dark purple snow crocuses, but either the hares or a really bored and troubled garden gnome did them in before I had a chance to get any good photographs of them in bloom.
Are you growing crocuses in your garden this year?
