This corner in Bossy’s neighborhood.
It gets full sun nearly all day, and therefore the plant life is usually a couple of weeks ahead of the rest of the neighborhood. In this case, the crocuses are already stretched in a carpet toward the intersection.
Go spring, go!
Acher saysMarch 10, 2009 at 8:24 am
So jealous! There is NO sign of plant life here yet!
MariaV saysMarch 10, 2009 at 8:31 am
Lovely! We’re still rather brown and grey.
Mandy saysMarch 10, 2009 at 8:41 am
Those are gorgeous. So nice to see some color springing up everywhere.
Ellie saysMarch 10, 2009 at 9:19 am
Those are *my* first flowers of spring.
Debby saysMarch 10, 2009 at 9:22 am
Holy crap, that is gorgeous!
Elizabeth saysMarch 10, 2009 at 9:38 am
Oh! As a former resident of Bossy’s lovely town who now lives in the arctic wilds of Massachusetts I am VERY VERY jealous of those flowers. Becuase I still have several inches of snow on my lawn!

This makes me so happy. I’m really rooting for spring. By which I mean, if we have one more day that dips below 45, I’m going to walk in front of a bus.
Emily saysMarch 10, 2009 at 10:22 am
Can I steal some of that green? Stupid March snows! Skiers may like it, but for the midget from Iowa living in Utah, frankly my dear, she doesn’t give a damn.

Today is -25C (-13F) in Calgary. With snow. and cold. So part of me wants to say thank you for this hopeful sign of spring and part of me hates you and your hopeful sign of spring. (but mostly thank you. pretty!)

I think they’re called snowdrops, and I used to have them in my yard, till we put down a whole new layer of dirt after having a patio built and now they’re not there anymore. Either that, or my dog defacating all over the place killed them. : (
Maren saysMarch 10, 2009 at 11:51 am
I would sit on that sidewalk all day staring at those beautiful crocuses! Mine aren’t brave enough yet here in Wisconsin…one more week?
anne marie in philly saysMarch 10, 2009 at 1:07 pm
I have crocus that color in my backyard too!
Reeb saysMarch 10, 2009 at 1:15 pm
That’s beautiful! I’ve never seen a carpet of crocuses (croci?) like that before.
This morning: snow on the two mounds of yellow-gold crocus on my way to work. We never get this much snow.

I haven’t figured out how to grow bulbs in So. Cal yet – I think they might bloom as soon as you plant them. But don’t they have to be cold first? So it is warm here but no crocus. Or daffodils. The cherry trees are starting tho.

Huston we have a problem!!!
I am with #10…
I hate you but I love you….
Over a foot of snow again and

Ask me tomorrow when I get thru
-45 below wind chills in central

Scilla are the first flowers to come up in my yard. They are wild, and blue and cover my lawn like your crocus’. I hate it when my husband puts down weedkiller because it kills the scilla too!!
My harbinger of spring…
Eloise saysMarch 10, 2009 at 7:20 pm
I love crocuses. Lovely picture!
Lizzy saysMarch 10, 2009 at 7:52 pm
My four year old made me get down and smell flowers like this yesterday when we were on our walk. I’m there still, cursing my bad knees.
Peg saysMarch 10, 2009 at 8:20 pm
Crocus are my fave. One Feb, I was in Paris and was so delighted to see crocus in the park. Bossy’s street looks like the Jardin de Ranelagh. You may now claim that name for your neighborhood.
Bossy\'s Friend Martha\'s Sister saysMarch 10, 2009 at 9:41 pm
get the F out of here… right now… cause I still have freaking … fracking black dirty snow banks… melting into a swampy mess of a garden… as Martha tells me she is planting “greens”……OXOXOX
Rachel D. saysMarch 10, 2009 at 10:49 pm
Another picture to warm me up?
lora saysMarch 11, 2009 at 10:17 am
crocuses and robins make me so damn happy i could cry. they are always the first signs that i don’t have to commit suicide because it won’t be winter forever
