we moved into the house we now live in on valentines day 1997. it was a warm sunny day. i remember one of the friends who helped us move saying,"she already has "flares" blooming in the yard". those "flare's" were yellow crocus and they have bloomed every year around this LOVEly time. i'm sure they were placed in the ground years ago.
today is february 16 and there is no sign of the crocus. my daffodils are coming up, so maybe the crocus will decide to pop out later, but i am a little worried.
this fall i will try and remember to put out more spring bulbs. jack will need a flare to pick.
