It was 1 degree this morning when I put my trash cans out for pickup..... the wind chill was between -10 and -15 degrees.... bitter....... and what do I see?...... my crocuses are coming up! I guess they didn't get the memo! We've had a very warm winter with the exception of the past 24-48 hours and the crocuses were ready to make an entrance. This has become a somewhat normal scene with our crazy weather patterns and even though my crocuses sprout months too early, they seem to survive the winter freezes and bloom in the spring in the appropriate weather. In any case, spring is on the way!
