Garden Bloggers Bloom Day March 15, 2009

Hey, hey, hey! It's Garden Bloggers Bloom Day again and I finally have something blooming outside (and a pot of blooming cheerfulness inside!) Yellow crocus are popping up all over in the patio garden and the long perennial borders. I used to have white and purple, too, but the deer eat them and leave the yellow ones alone, for the most part. (Anyone know why?)
Daffodils and day lilies are poking up already, but they are a long way from blooming. The daffodils will be pictured here next month, I'll bet.

And inside, on my table, a big bowl of yellow violas. Aren't their little blossoms cheerful?

Your violas and crocuses are very pretty! The deer must love purple as much as I do.

Maybe the deer think the yellow crocuses look like daffodils. Daffodils are full of very noxious alkaloids which make them unpalatable, so maybe sharing the color with them saves the yellow crocuses.

You should just be happy that the deer leave them alone!
