Our neighbor Gordon's crocuses cheerily appeared a few weeks ago. He planted a few small clusters of them on the South edge of his property. They were such a welcome sight after days of dreary wintry weather.... helping me to feel Hopeful.
My first experience with crocuses happened in Indiana. Near the front porch steps on the east-facing side of our house they bloomed at the edge of the receding snow bank. It was our first spring in Indiana....
There was a home in West Lafayette where they had planted crocuses in their entire front lawn. It was wonderful. By the time the crocuses were done blooming, their leaves looked sort of like grass. The leaves were ready to be cut by the time the lawn was ready to take over.
The Knight nixed the idea.
Don't you think a lawn full of crocuses sounds delightful?
