Today’s Flowers: Early Spring

crocus with orange stripe
Enjoy the lovely striped crocuses with orange stamen that grow in front of my home.

white crocus
I also have white crocuses that popped up recently next to my sidewalk.

The first periwinkle has shown its purplish blue petals on the side of my house.

crocus purple bunch
This is a fun bunch of purple crocuses that emerged under my climbing rose bush.

deer nibbled
My neighbor just showed me where the deer have already nibbled at his (and my) tulips.

deer nibbled marked
The pink markings show where the deer nibbled (upper left) and the deer hoof (bottom right). I am thinking of buying blood meal. Other deer-friendly scare tactics welcome.

Today’s Flowers: Crocus

Such a joy that my neighbor’s crocuses are blooming! (Two points for anyone who can pluralize crocus in a different way, without looking it up in Google, no cheating!)

For some reason the orange ones have opened up before the purples.

A few of the crocuses have stripes!
