Early Spring Crocus

(Toledo, OH) The arrival of crocus blossoms might not signal the end of springtime frosts, but they are certainly a sign of warmer weather ahead. Over the past day the crocuses in my yard have begun to bloom, and the sight of natural bright colors from plant life in my yard is long overdue.

We are hopeful that the crocus plants will be able to survive the pounding that they will undoubtedly take from our dogs. So far the canine residents have not been interested in digging up the crocus bulbs, though I think we lost a few over the winter to hungry rabbits and squirrels. Unfortunately, there are no provisions for funeral costs after the untimely demise of such plants, but such is the gardening life.
