Gardening on a small plot with an oak tree in one corner and trying to encourage more wildlife. Love visiting gardens and buying plants too!

The crocuses from last year haven't done well at all and most seem to have drowned in the rain ☹ but these seem to be more robust so I may still get some that open 🙂. Enjoy your weekend.

A lot of mine are the same and they're not even managing to open, it's really disappointing isn't it Sue 💜💜💜

It is Jane, was really looking forward to seeing them again after all the dull weather. Things can only get better- hopefully! 🤞🤞🤞 @pelly

Some of mine look floppy from all the rain and wind. Especially crocus chrysanthus. Crocus tommasinianus seem to be doing better, both this one and Barr's purple.

It's such a shame isn't it Urszula. Mine are all planted out, so next year I'm going to do some in pots as I can put them in a more protected place. @ublaszko
