Tuesday, March 8These are my favorite spring flowers, because my mother gave these bulbs to us 42 1/2 years ago for our 10th wedding anniversary – September 14, 1973
She gave us a small bag of bulbs – probably 10 of them – and said, this gift isn’t very pretty, but they will be pretty in spring.
She died fairly on March 16, 1974 – at the age of 52 – about the time our crocus’ always bloom. She went to the hospital thinking she had appendicitis and died two weeks later from complications from cancer.
They have multiplied, and sometimes we find them in the woods area of our lot because we accidentally remove a bulb when we do yardwork – and throw the dirt and leaves on our leaf pile.
Now you know why these are my favorite spring flowers.
