Wherefore Art Thou, Spring?


Last year, on March 18th, I took a picture of a yellow crocus in my yard.

And then, on March 27th, I took a picture of a cluster of purple crocus, also in my yard.

This year? Well, I took this picture yesterday. Sigh.

It’s going to be a while before there are any crocus.

But at least I have daffodil shoots.

Spring will come. Right?

  1. Oh can I relate! Mt side garden is finally exposed and I did spy some tiny green shoots where the bulbs are planted. The rest of the yard is snow covered! The maples are budding though!

  2. We can hope. I hear some birds chirping in a springlike way just now, though.

  3. Spring is taking her time, because she’s lingering in Utah! Wish I could send you a little of her scent in a bottle! She’ll be worth the wait.

  4. I’m pretty sure the crocus is under that snow somewhere … if we just knew where to dig!

  5. Oh, I feel you. It’s snowing like crazy here. Did I already mention that my crocuses bloomed in December? Hang in there–change is the only constant!

  6. Ugh. We had snow atop the dreaded “wintry mix” yesterday. I was thankful that it was my day off and I didn’t have the early-morning drive. Trying to be patient — can’t do much more than that! Spring *will* come.
