It's Spring! Crocus Spotting.

I walked into my garden yesterday and let out a shriek - it sounded something like this "Eeeekkkkkkkk"! Eighty crocus ready to bloom! Yesterday in the rain they looked like little slim,white fingers coming up out of the rich, dark soil. Today, we had sun, and all 80 were at full flower. Now, I have an excruciatingly detailed process to press bulbs - I've mastered tulips, daffodils, muscari, and anemone, but for some reason, I'm still working on perfecting my crocus pressing. Looks like I'll have enough to practice on. Time to get the nails dirty and get out in the garden!

  1. Okay I am curious How did the crocus turn out? are you really pressing the bulb too?
    I'll be back! Peace
