My World: Crocus Pickwick in bloom

Crocus Pickwick, Fairfield Glade, Tennessee. March 1, 2011.

This is my post for the My World meme.  It is hosted by Klaus, Ivar, Sandy, Wren, and Fishing Guy.  To learn more about our world or to join and share your part of the world, click HERE.

We have good news and bad news on our Spring Watch this week.  The good news is that the crocus are blooming — Spring colors have begun.  The bad news is that they are blooming about two weeks early than they did last year.  I’m not sure Old Man Winter has agreed to stay away for good.

But there’s nothing we can do about that, so we’re just enjoying the crocus as they brighten up our yard.

    Hi George
    Hope Betsy gave you a very happy birthday.
    I think you know who I am? – and you won’t have to
    ask Betsy!!!
    This is the first time I have looked at your blog – very
    interesting indeed. You see when my “Tennessee” mate
    says look at George’s blog and wish you a happy birthday,
    well I guess that is like a Presidential order!!! I do so.
    God, she will crucify me for that comment!!!
    Just hope that the Chattahoochee River ‘white rafting’ wasn’t
    Looking forward to Betsy’s blog report on your birthday in GA!
    Cheers mate
