Spring beauties

The early spring bulbs are much appreciated this year after all that snow. It's amazing how the winter aconite can show off after a few days of sun. Here they are under the oak tree, just opening...

and here they are at the end of a sunny day.

I have also loved the tommy crocuses that Mom liked so well. I hate planting bulbs, even though these are as easy as anything to stick in the ground, but I had no idea how much I would love their smiling faces:

If I just keep planting another 50-100 each year, the front lawn will soon be filled with them.

Your mom had given some aconite bulbs years ago, but they never bloomed. I think I'll get some this year in her memory.
