THE OLD AND THE NEW

With a little sunshine we get the first crocuses. This patch is next to the blueberries. They are so tiny. Just compare them to last year's maple leaves.

A tripod shot. These are the little crocuses. There are some slightly larger ones in other parts of the yard be they are barely up yet.

And and an about as close as I can get without getting down on the ground macro shot. The foliage with these is so fine it looks almost like grass. They're so delicate you're almost afraid to breath to hard on them.

We don't got no croakies yet...  At least, none that I have seen.  We are usually about two weeks behind you guys down there in the Willamette Valley when it comes to spring blooms...  Lisa  :-]

Trying REALLY HARD not to resent you, Jackie.  We have cold rain here in Hooterville -- with ice and snow due in a few hours.  GRRRRRRR  :(
