Crocuses, Seven Weeks Later

March 21, 2012 Gardening 0 Comments

My crocuses started to flower at the end of February (I planted them a little late). The first seven were yellow. Then two white ones, and then six or seven purple ones. So far none have been munched on by bunnies. My chrysanthemums, however, were visited by a deer in the middle of the night who slobbered all over one of them. The leaves developed brown spots and then turned yellow. I had to cut the whole plant back to nothing – hopefully it will regrow (sans midnight deer visits) and do its thing in the fall likes it’s supposed to!
