Sign of Spring

Postby Vina8 » Sun Feb 28, 2010 5:07 pm

My crocus are up! We planted the bulbs last fall, and today we noticed that they are up and ready to bloom, maybe tomorrow. :clap: I sure hope they don't get covered in snow this week!

We are in a new place. When we bought it last Sept. or so... They had a little area near the front door with tons of little pansy's... NOW, we have some long leafed suckers popping up through the dirt. Not sure what they are yet, but excited to see something coming up. Maybe tulips or ? Hurry up and grow I say.lol

We will have to start looking for them again. There are a lot of turkeys around here and sometimes come in the yard to eat.

Should you really be describing your neighbors like that? Just because they don't prep doesn't mean you should call them names.

:rofl: Very good, Muzhik. Actually, I have had neighbors like that, but thank goodness, not here. BTW, the crocus bloomed today, and we are supposed to get 2" to 4" of snow tomorrow. :ouch:

The crocus are now covered in about 2" of snow, and it is still snowing. :thumbdown: This is just amazing. I don't think it is ever going to stop.

Couldn't you have just dragged a line out through the basement window and hooked them up to...

(... wait for it ...)

your stump pump?
