Focus on Crocus



First a howling blizzard woke us,
Then the rain came down to soak us,
And now before the eye can focus --
Crocus.

Crocuses are like candy to the chipmunks in my yard. I have exactly one blooming this year.

Well aren't they just the sweetest things!

Beautiful photos! I've been patiently waiting for the few crocuses the rabbits didn't eat to bloom. Now they're under a couple inches of snow. Guess I'll have to wait a little longer!

Awww your crocus look so sweet. I love the poem too. It is very fitting.

You have so many pretty varieties! I like the lone one in the grass!

I just love that little crocus poem! Is Inniswood a long drive for you? It takes me about a half hour to get there, totally worth it. I promised I would go back to see the daffodils and tulips, and it's probably going to be soon. Hmmm, when is my next day off? Puschkinia looks right, but I also see it called striped squill. Someone else said Chionodoxa. Hmmm.

I 'oood and awwwd' the whole way through...such a variety of crocus'! Me, I have just one. Is this your garden?! I enjoyed the verse you included; very cute!

Man... every fall, I walk right past the little crocus bulbs, tempted by snowdrops and sweet-smelling jonquils and fun little species tulips. And every spring I see posts like these--not to mention displays in my neighbors' gardens--and KICK MYSELF for not buying any! Lovely photos, Kylee.

You just can't have enough crocuses. Especially since the chipmunks seem to enjoy chowing down on them! Must get many more this fall. Has anyone ever planted bulbs in nets or cages to keep critters out? Beautiful pictures!!
