The beginning of spring is still three weeks away, but yesterday I thought I saw a speck of color in one of my flower beds. I went out to investigate, and discovered that the first of the crocus had bloomed.
I don't remember ever seeing any blossoms this early. Fortunately, the rest of the crocus were not yet blooming because last night we had a light snow. Those first blossoms quickly vanished. But never fear... ol' man Winter has not had the tight grip that he had in the previous two years. Next week the temperature is predicted to rise into the 60s again!
