Crocuses!


I don't care how many more times it may snow, sleet, or freeze. The crocuses have come up, their sweet, unassuming pale purple carpetting more than a few yards in my neighborhood, and so it is therefore spring.
How do you mark the beginning of spring--a certain flower, change in the air, or greeting from a robin? Or are you a stickler for the date?

For me, spring usually starts when the crocuses bloom too. But with all the crazy weather we've had, the daffodils bloomed first--they started blooming a couple of weeks ago. And my first crocus opened today.
