It’s been a long time coming …

But … Spring has arrived!

No matter the forecast for snow in some parts of Connecticut (thankfully not my part), crocus are in bloom.

Tete-a tetes show their happy faces in spite of early nibbles by marauding deer.

This bears repeating … crocus are in bloom!

And one tiny iris reticulata has joined in the fun.

    That is some luscious blue! Yes, crocus in bloom and it is worth repeating. It has been a long winter.

    You’re killing me! Except for snowdrops and the vivid little iris reticulatas, I have nothing showing yet. No daffodils here, just green shoots about an inch high. And snow north of I 84 coming today and tomorrow. sigh. Love your crocuses!

    Layanee, I hope to have a sweep of luscious blue iris reticulata some day. I just have to remember to order them for fall planting.

    I feel for you, Laurrie. At least you can enjoy spring via these photos. The Tete-a-tetes are very early bloomers … worth planting for this reason alone.
