On Getting Your Money Back
But not this year. The picture above is the closest I've got to a blooming crocus. It's trying to bloom, certainly, but it has the problem of still being trapped down at the bottom of the leaf bundle. The leaves, apparently, know better about whether things are looking good for signs of spring and the emergence of crocus buds.
So, dear Lydia, if you were here, we would have to credit this with being a sign of spring, but a very weak one. Perhaps we could ask for our money back?
(Side Note: I know local people who have crocuses blooming already, but my point is that MY crocuses have always bloomed by now. And my crocuses are definitely not blooming now.)
