In the Garden – Cats & Crocuses

Crocuses and Snowdrops are the first thing I find in the garden in the spring.

I found my Firefly Crocuses in bloom on the first day of spring this year, and I found more this past weekend.


Along with evidence that the Siberian Squill would soon be making an appearance as well.


Which I should get out and check on soon…But for today: more crocuses!

I have different crocuses in the flower bed by our driveway – your basic purple ones (couldn’t tell you an official name). On Tuesday we had:



And today as we pulled in to the driveway after work I was excited to see:




Husband advised me to enjoy them while I can; they are bound to become deer snacks.

And no day in the garden would be complete without some Fabulous Felines…

Those last two are sort of cheating because they are from the weekend, but the boys weren’t in the mood to pose today. Can’t say I blame them – it turned out to be a beautiful day for frolicking in the garden!

I am jealous of your crocuses! There is still snow on the lawn around here.... although the patches are slowly becoming smaller and smaller. I DID see a dandelion blooming in a crack in the sidewalk the other day in town, so spring must be here! :)

Beautiful shots as usual! I love all these signs of Spring. :)

I am jealous of your crocuses, too. I've given up trying to protect them from the mice long enough to have blooms.

Sagan - I think the cats are with you on the 'prison', Frank especially, but most humans would say they are pretty lucky felines to have that space to roam in. :)
