Renegade Crocus

A few years ago, my mom gave me some tiny iris bulbs that yield cute little iris in spring. But somehow an odd crocus bulb got into the mix and surprises us every February.  Such bright yellow is a shocking sight at this time of year!    I have also spotted quince and forsythia blooming around town.  What signs of spring are you seeing, if any?

Opera quilt update:  I was hoping for at least $100 and the quilt sold for $110.  Success!  Thanks for all your nice comments.

    That’s quite the contrast with the irises! I’m always surprised by how early Spring starts here–not that I consider winter here “real” winter. ;)

    That’s great news about the quilt!

    My first sign of spring? My peas are sprouting. I’m so excited for fresh produce.

    Hello! I read your comment today. Thank you very much for your support. I’ve emailed the OT to come out and help me figure this out.
    When I go back to the store for fabric (because I’m addicted you know) I’ll pick some up for you. How much would you like dear?

    What do you mean, signs of spring? Do snow and ice count as such? Because it is the only thing we are having around here at the moment!
    You can be proud of your Opera quilt. It was so nice, it is only fair that it brought so much.
    I bet with your machine quilting course soon, you will be able to finish even more quilts in a run! Take care.

    Well, I’m in Michigan and we just had snow yesterday :) However today it is sunny and in the 50’s so one never knows what to expect. I did notice that my forsythia bush is starting to get buds on it, so hopefully soon it will open!
