spring flowers!

crocus 159

A yard down the street from me has a front yard that fills with early spring flowers every year. These are always the first bulbs to bloom. Crocuses and snowdrops on a south facing slope. How wonderful!

  • What a wonderful sight. I planted Muscari a couple years ago in the front lawn. I can't wait until they spread like these.

  • Oh, how lovely! Here in Michigan I still have a while to go yet before I see crocus. Yesterday I did see my Hyacinths peeking out of the winter earth. Can't wait-so tried of cold and snow!

  • Oh! The first signs of spring!!! I just love those early bulbs…someday I'd like to have a landscape with a place for bulbs like that, but for now, I'll just look at these pictures 🙂 Thanks for posting them – brightened my day!

  • They're beautiful. I live over in Roslindale and the soil is thawed at least 6 inches, and in some places more. Do you think I could plant peas yet or is it too early?

  • You should wait til St Patrick's Day. The soil is probably too muddy and the seeds may rot. And March can be very snowy – who knows what will come for weather. But I agree, it seems nice out. If you want to experiment and don't mind if you loose all the seeds, I enjoy an experiment!

  • I have four feet of snow in my front yard, so it will be quite awhile before I see anything like that there. Thanks for the preview.

  • How wonderful it is to see green! My yard and garden are still covered by a couple of inches of snow here in Western MA. Soon enough!

  • Oh, such pretty spring flowers. A few more days and I think I can go out and start working on my garden.

    I love your blog. Found out about this on the veggie gardener.
