We have small crocus' planted throughout the yard and their job is to signal spring each year. While a couple had shown up a week ago (and tended to stay closed) with today's warmer temperatures they have opened up and announced their presence again!
The hellebore's are up and blooming (as they have been for the past month plus). I love the colors -- dark purple, almost black and the yellow is terrific as well. Actually, the dark purple didn't make into the photo -- off to the right.
A close up of the crocus' in the lawn. Spring!
