Is the plural croci?? Not too much green around here, yet. The grey lawn seem to go along with grey days. We have had some nice sunny days and the sun came out long enough to get this shot yesterday. Crocus come up all over. My sister says the squirrels dig them up and rebury them in another spot. The long shaggy grass is left over from last fall when I should have done one last mowing. I think crocus are the bravest of the early spring blossoms. Our resident woodchuck, called Mildred, is out every day, inspecting the rosa mundi bed to get the first green leaf buds. Of course, it may not be the same chuck every year or even a female, but they're all Mildreds to me.
