Every Spring, my yard signals Spring's arrival by sprouting a blanket of crocus. Tiny little flowers in yellow, purple and white dot my front lawn. I don't know which previous owner got them started, but I like them so much, I have let them stay.
What a happy suprise it is to wake up one morning and see little baby flowers all over your lawn. One day, dull dead gras... the next, bright, happy little flowers.
