First Bloom of the Spring

    “And the winner is.....A crocus.”

    After the long gray winter, I hungrily await the blooming of flowers.  A lot of flowering plants have sprouted and are showing their leaves in the flower bed beside the house where they catch and intensify the warmth of the sun, but the first plant that actually flowered was this lone crocus.  I have planted 100’s of croci in the past decades, they bloom the first year, then slowly disappear with the passing of time.  Happily, this particular plant is still hanging in there and doing well.

    I’ve got to remember to soon spray the other emerging flowering plants with deer repellent.  The deer usually come around at night an decapitate the blooms just as they start to open up.  Thus is life in the Interior of BC.
