A Facebook fan of mine suggested that I should paint crocuses poking through snow. As we've had snowless winters for the past two years, I thought it could not be done. Guess what. I found an old picture of crocuses half buried in a thin layer of snow.
Crocuses will start blooming in a month. If we are lucky, we will get some snow to coincide with these hardy early spring flowers. I have them all over my garden and yards. Crocuses are good naturalizers, that is, they multiply on their own. Deer don't eat them either!
