Can You Stand Another Crocus Picture?

I know you have seen first crocus pics for the past two months. I really believe I am the last person in Blogville to get a crocus bloom (just for the record the first tiny crocus bloomed last Thursday)  It may be boring to you, but it's my FIRST BLOOMS OF THE YEAR, signalling that spring has finally arrived.  Therefore, please pretend I am a new grandmother and I have just opened my wallet and two dozen baby pics cascade to the floor...just grit your teeth, smile and tell me how pretty  my baby is.

Come on now, you have to admit that this is a darn good looking clump and they are already closing up for the night. Yes, I am quite proud of this clump of crocus. It's the best little spring clump I have had in my 23 years of gardening.

I even spent about an hour outside cleaning up some of the front flower beds. I cut down 2 wheelbarrow loads and decided that was enough for my first outing.  Hopefully, it will be warm today and I can do more.
Because you were kind enough to read this far, I have included some container eye candy from my file called "Container Ideas".  I think most of these pictures were snagged from HGTV's site.
Picture #1 would be gorgeous on top of my main arbor.  For the past couple of years, I have not planted anything up there. It was too much work lugging a hose 50 feet to water it. But last year I had a faucet installed right near that arbor, so I think I will plant the top of it this year.  The second pic is just a color combo I like.

And OMG, wouldn't you love to own that home with those spectacular window baskets and that stunning side porch?

Pic #4 is a nice combo for a wall planter. I own a couple of those planters and thought it might be an interesting combo to try.
Happy Hump Day!


  1. I believe your 'grand' crocus are just adorable. And yes mam those containers are gorgeous!

  2. Thank you Zoey for sharing the photo of the crocuses..those are the first ones I've seen this year!

  3. Funny you mentioned the photos in the wallet. I've always thought about doing that with some of my favorite plants just to see people's reaction. Oh yeah, by the way, I still like seeing crocus photos.

  4. The croci are so delicate and pretty. Mine are finished (the few I have)and the daffodils are in full bloom.
    Love the snags from HGtv.

  5. Aw, thanks you guys for being so nice!

  6. Never too many pics of bulbs! Better late than never and all of us in our own time...
    the second pic, the grass in the middle is Pennisetum Fireworks. the plug was priced way too high for my nursery to grow, so I am wondering what the retail will be! It was hugely popular last year, in the few patio pots we sold it in.
    Your crocus clump is lovely!

  7. Thank you for sharing your crocus photo. They are magnificient!!!
