I almost missed it. I have been working in the front beds, and have not been working in the main rose bed. That bed has already been pruned and weeded. Nothing there to see. Or, so I thought. But I needed to move some plants from a failed bed (weeds overtook and I didn't have the energy to fight them all). Since the main rose bed was the closest, I decided to put some of those plants there. No other reason - just slothfulness and laziness prevailed.
That's when I saw them.
Bulbs are amazing things. You plant them, forget them, then one day - poof! - they come up after you've forgotten about them. I had certainly forgotten all about planting these crocus bulbs. But aren't they adorable? I cried out with delight when I saw them. That purple color! I love it!
