Eye Candy Friday, First Flower Edition

Perhaps not my most stunning photo ever, but one of the more exciting ones right now, this one I took last night:


Usually these are blooming a week or two earlier. It seemed it would never happen. But poof! After our deluge of rain 4 days ago, last night, the buds were there!

Now if only the resident Naughty Bunny doesn’t eat them today before I get Bunny Repellent on them. I’ve been gone from home every night and haven’t been able to do it yet. Crocus buds make a tasty bunny snack, apparently, and we have rabbits living under the storage shed. A few years ago, when I had just planted a new bunch of crocuses with the help of my daughters, and the flowers were all at this stage — the girls were all excited to see them bloom — WHAM! The next morning, every single one was headless! I nearly cried.

The next year, I planted a lot more daffodils. Less heartbreak that way. You gotta protect yourself, you know?
