Flowers to Come

The first of my crocus are sprouting now.  When I was little, they appeared in March.  Then it was February.  Now January.  Le sigh.  Global warming means they tend to sprout early and then get buried in snow.  Crocus and snowdrops can survive that.  Daffodils, tulips, and hyacinths not so much -- freezing tends to kill their flower buds.
