I snapped this guy in the early morning of March 19, 2008. Although the crocus actually precede the daffies and the jonquils in our yard, we don’t count them as true harbingers of spring. Fact is, the crocus only last about a day or so before the deer eat them. So when the daffies and jonquils come up we know it’s really, finally spring!!! The blooms on these are about 2 to 3 inches in diameter.
