Four Up - 2696 to go - Big Bulb planting project


Last fall I planted upwards of 2700 Daffodils, Crocus (Croci?), and Tulips last fall on a small bank in my front yard.

Today I found my first four Crocus blooms

Ha!! Just to start hey?

YAY! Spring is almost here!

I've planted hundreds of Crocuses all over in my front yard and each year a patch about 5" wide comes up in one little spot. It should have expanded by now, but it's still exciting to see the first blooms on my way to the mailbox. I think that's the only spot in the yard that doesn't have Black Walnut tree roots nearby.
