It's official! My crocus has bloomed! Yipee!!! They mark the very first, outside, on-their-own, flowers of the new gardening year. I think I should throw a party or something!
And there are more buds on the way for more sunny crocus flowers.
On Friday, I went to the Plant Delights Nursery Open House and found another treasure. Well, actually several more. Do you know how hard it is to not bring all the plants home? I had already blown the plant budget for the day, o.k., for the week, make that month, when bright yellow flowers in one of the greenhouses caught my eye as I was walking past. I might have been able to resist had they not been fragrant. I am a sucker for fragrance. There was another plant that I really wanted, also, (I guess there were actually dozens of plants I wanted), but the false crocus won out because it was perfuming the air.
The false crocus has beautiful black lines down the outside.
And it is smaller than the true crocus. But it is fragrant.
Have a beautiful day!
It's been a glamorous week in the garden
