Crocus Craze

A sure sign of Spring!



This little guy might have been making his first flight, he looks pretty new to me.

I was tending to a plant that my neighbor, Sally gave me, clipping off yesterday’s news to get to the fresh growth before putting it in the earth and in mid-clip I heard a lot of chatter. Looked up and saw this guy on one of the branches that was next in line for a trim.

And no, I don’t have my camera with me when I’m doing dirt therapy. I had to go up to the house to get it, thinking that I’d missed my photo op, but he was still there when I got back and we had a nice little conversation.

This was his response when I asked him what he was doing there. Kinda looks like the expression a teenager gets when you ask if they’ve cleaned their room.

Hosta in Progress

It’s fun to watch the hostas make their way from just peeking up through the earth to being full blown here.

And there’s something about all the plants being just on the edge of opening their leaves or flowers that makes me get that same feeling I got when I was a kid during the time leading up to a big event. Such anticipation and excitement!
