Crocus Blooming Now!

Beautiful early crocus are starting to bloom in the side garden–they really open up when the sun comes out and warms things up.  Here’s a couple of photos:

The bottom photo is of a crocus called ‘Pickwick.’  It’s a little hard to see, but they are white with lavender/purple stripes with a bright yellow center–very pretty.

Crocus bloom at the same time as snowdrops, primroses, Chinese witch hazel, viburnum and Japanese flowering quince.  The small bulbs are planted in the fall for spring bloom.
