Playing push-up and catch-up

Yesterday, only one day after our first white crocuses appeared, the first purple one pushed its way up through the blanket of last autumn’s leaves in an apparent attempt to catch up with the earlier emergers.

Third crocus 7439Many more shoots are visible now and there should soon be many more. Next will come our Pushkin snowdrops, aka Siberian squill. Stay tuned!

  1. Still no sign of ours, but it should not be long in sunnier spots.

  2. Have any of your native wildflowers shown signs of doing something? Things still seem rather bleak here, at least when seen from a car, but when I went walking in nature yesterday and took a closer look I found half a dozen species of wildflowers already appearing. In other words, in Austin spring is springing.
