Spring is here!
This photo was taken in our backyard a couple of days ago. Crocuses are always the first flowers to bloom in spring. Then come the daffodils, then the tulips. I planted hyacinths too, but they never appeared. I still don't know what happened. Did some animal eat the bulbs? Or did I plant them upside down (my boyfriend's theory)? I guess we'll never know...
When we first moved into our current house almost two years ago, I bought 100 Euros worth of bulbs and spent a cold November Saturday on my hands and knees planting them all. But Boy was it ever worth it! Now I don't need to do anything at all and I have a garden constantly in bloom during all the Spring months. Crocuses sometimes start to bloom even when there's still snow on the ground. This year, they didn't. But, as you can see, the grass is still quite dead around the pretty flowers - rebirth!!

P.S. Why do we say cactus -> cacti, but crocus -> crocuses? Or do we? Should we say croci?!!?
