What a difference a day makes. April brings a better view.
Yesterday, the last day of March, my crocus held their buds closed in response to the coating of snow/sleet.
Today they opened up to the sun.
If you have vole problems try these Crocus tommasinianus ‘Ruby Giant’. This is the third spring they have bloomed with no sign of vole damage. Voles have either consumed or moved all the non-tommasinianus crocus varieties I’ve planted.
