First Blooms: Crocuses

Bulbs are a wonderful gardening investment
since you reap their benefits of beauty 
year after year without the blood, sweat and tears
(that sounded dramatic!)
of planting each year.

One planting = yearly beauty.

We are enjoying these crocus blooms
planted 7 seasons ago.

It's spring fever.  
That is what the name of it is.  
And when you've got it, you want - 
oh, you don't quite know what it is you do want, 
but it just fairly makes your heart ache, 
you want it so!  
Mark Twain
