Gold in the Garden

When I saw these crocuses blooming on the 3rd day of February, I felt like I had discovered nuggets of gold. I’ve never before had garden flowers this early.

Yellow crocuses
I’m amazed that something that appears so delicate can survive our below-freezing temperatures, but they seem to take the cold in stride. The blossoms close tightly at night, but open and seem to glow on sunny afternoons. Thanks be for nature’s February gold!

  1. Betty, we are seeing buds poking up, I think more Surprise Lilies than Crocus, but they are not close to any blooms. We’ve had above average temps in Chicagoland, but looks like below average will be here for next 7 to 10 days.
