I planted a bunch of crocus bulbs and some tulip bulbs at the end of December and the crocuses have already popped through! With the exception of a few days here and there this has been a really mild January for the Atlanta area. Not that our winters are usually that bad, but this year has definitely been abnormal. I have a feeling that we’re going to pay for this unseasonal warmth with some crazy cold March that will kill all the buds on the trees. This is the first time that I have planted bulbs in the ground (I planted some in a pot last spring that didn’t quite do what they were supposed to)…I’ll probably find out this spring just how many bunnies I have in my yard. I hear they like crocuses.
