    Was out looking at my silly chickens just now and spotted the very first of the snow crocus popping up! This has been a strange winter for sure! (They're the two tiny yellow buds peeping out of the green henbit, towards the left of the photo). The snow crocus bloom very early, but I've never seen them flower before mid-February.
