Crocuses!

The crocuses are finally poking through the ground. They are usually the very first flowers to come up here, & although the other plants are barely alive, these bright blossoms are already in full bloom. Most of them are a light violet color, but a few of them are a cheerful yellow. It’s so nice to finally see those flowers!

March flowers

 

"A crocus."

Crocuses are blossoming bright yellow flowers. They are one of the first flowers to bloom here, and can handle fairly cold temperatures.

Tulips are also sprouting, but it will be a while before you can see their petals. Tulips are one of the last flowers to blossom in the spring, and have a fairly short season, as they stop blooming in early summer.

Rhubarb plants are peeking out of the ground too. They are very tiny now; in a few months they’ll be large enough to cook with,(-= but now you can barely see them.

Other plants that will show up soon are: Chives, Rhododendrons, & Dianthis. But right now they’re still hidden, waiting for warmer weather.
