Signs of Spring
I have had crocus try to bloom before today. Thanks to the squirrels or perhaps rabbits, this is all that I have found until today’s blossom:
Chewed foliage and scattered petals.
Happily whoever is nibbling my crocus doesn’t seem to care for the few snowdrops that are blooming.
I wish I could get snowdrops to naturalize in my yard. They such a welcome sight after a long dreary winter.
No sign yet of any columbine, but a little digging through the leaves covering my flower beds reveal that last year’s wintersown survivor of both squirrels and myself, is preparing to make its debut.
I have my fingers crossed that the squirrels will not chew off the flower stalk before it has a chance to bloom.
