Mike Watson: Crocus Watch - probably 3 days until color

Michael C Watson writes:
I'm on daily watch for any sign of crocus blossoms, but to date (January 22, 2018) there are only green foliate spikes, no color. However, with the recent frigid temperatures and the four inch deep snow cover, only melting this weekend, and with no bright sun since the melt, the crocus are slow in coming into their full glory. Another day or three, perhaps. -- Mike
