Oh, so lovely. Some of my Snowdrops are blooming, but the Crocuses are holding off for the next warm snap, I guess. Thanks for the reminder to get over to Olbrich while the spring-flowering bulbs are in their glory.

Beth: I was surprised at how many crocus there were at Olbrich. I was hoping tulips and daffodils might be coming up as well, but not quite yet. They also had some small purple iris coming up, but I did not get a photo of them. I'm hoping to catch one of the early April tours at the Arboretum, so maybe I'll see some of everything in Longenecker. ☺

I love snowdrops. Mine grow in shelter shade and are, for that reason, late to bloom.

Absolutely stunning flowers Beth.

the flowers in the first photo are really interesting. I have never seen ones like it before.

Jana said...

So pretty. Such a relief to see some actual blooming things. ;)

Heather said...

Thanks, everyone -- and yes . . . so nice to see stuff starting to bloom.

Gorgeous little blooms and great signs that spring is near.

Heather said...

Betty: We're seeing more and more green, but not too many flowers yet blooming yet.

Alice Audrey said...

Maybe I'm looking in the wrong places. Surely if you have them, then I've got some kind of flower around. Have you got leaves yet? I did see a few buds the other day.

Heather said...

Alice: Nope, no leaves yet, though a few trees are starting to bud. We're starting to warm up again, so probably won't be long now.
