Our first little rebel

On my daily flower check yesterday morning, I finally spotted our first bloom!

There are several others close behind, rebelling against the still-cold weather we've been suffering. I've been seeing crocus blooming everywhere except my flowerbed, so I was worried that I am a bad gardener after all. A quick Google search assured me that first-year bulbs often take a week or two longer to bloom than established ones. Whew!

Oh, and whether your Irish heritage is real or adopted (or if like me you're not sure), happy St. Patrick's Day!
