Good afternoon all! Not sure where this lonely #purple #crocus came from but it looks like he's just in time for the #tuesdaychoice #purpleblooms challenge! It has been an awful day here, hope it has been better where you are! 😀

Good morning GTers! Thought we were going to escape the rain yesterday, but no! At least there was a short period of sunshine allowing the first of the #crocus to open! Have a marvellous Monday everyone! 😀

Lovely! I haven’t even checked my Crocus - I wonder if I have any out yet? Most of mine opened around late Feb March last year I think.

@richard.spicer.7906 - This one is in a sheltered spot and is definitely a front runner in dad's garden! That's about the time when most of mine were open last year! No need to worry yet! 😀
