March Bloom Day: Crocuses!

If you're new here, welcome!
I garden in Eastern Washington state, USA, zone 5b.

After several days of snow and rain, we seem to have settled into a holding pattern of warmer weather (in the 50's F) and near-constant rain.

The lawn is a soggy, squishy mess, and all the dead foliage from last year's flowers is practically rotting where it stands. I am thankful it hasn't snowed in almost a week.
Now we just need a bit of sunshine to dry things out!

In the meantime, the warmer weather has brought up some crocuses!

Those blessed crocuses!
They aren't opening up much today, with the overcast skies, but I'll take them any way they come.

Two iris reticulate just breaking open.

One little snowdrop.

They may be small and few in number, but they make my heart happy!

Head over to Carol's blog at May Dreams Gardens to see what everyone else has blooming right now.


  1. Wonderful Spring flowers!
    Have a great day!

    1. Thanks, Lea! I'm looking forward to daffodils soon!

  2. It's good to hear that you are coming into some warmer temperatures. Here in my zone 7 Long Island garden we are still in the 30's. Love your crocus! So far thy are the only thing blooming in my garden, beside hellebores. Think spring!

    1. I hope you get some warmer weather soon! I'm thinking spring as hard as I can! :)
