This week’s featured flower is one of our earliest bloomers each year: crocus! These little purple flowers with their bright orange centers begin to appear each February and always help remind us that spring is on the way. We have planted several different varieties of crocus bulbs (both autumn & spring blooming varieties), and all of them provide extremely low-maintenance bursts of color each year. For more information about crocuses, you can visit My Web Garden or The Gardener’s Network.
Book note: I read Rachel Hawkins’ Hex Hall today & hope to get reviews posted for Lauren Oliver’s Before I Fall & Shelena Short’s The Pace over the weekend. I’ve started reading Heather Webber’s Truly, Madly, and Amy Brecount White’s Forget-Her-Nots is up next in my TBR pile. Next week looks like it will include Lindsay Eland’s Scones and Sensibility and Lauren Kate’s Fallen.
