hints of spring

I found this little guy peeking through at the bottom of our front porch steps two days ago. I was so excited. Partly because it means spring is just around the corner and partly because I am excited to see what will come up in our new yard. I see lots of green appearing all over the place and I can't wait to find out what is already here. Yesterday when I went out the little guy above had gained some friends...
Lucy and I decided to explore the yard to see if there were any more surprises for us. And there were! These beauties were blooming beneath the fig tree (yes, the fig tree!)...
Then I discovered that we have a Lenten Rose that has bloomed. Are these pretty? The flowers actually face the ground. It wasn't until after I picked this one up for the photo that I found out they are poisonous and can cause skin irritation. Oops.
We also have a camellia bush, a gardenia bush, some hydrangeas, azaleas and lots of other plants I have not identified yet. I know we are going to have a lot of fun in this new yard.

Things are starting to come together in the new house. I look forward to sharing photos with you!

Aren't crocuses the sweetest little spring flower?!

Can't wait to see the new place!

It's such a nice time of the year to move.
Hope you are settling in nicely. I'm anxiously awaiting some flowers here.

if there is anything cuter than a crocus... it has to be crocae...
(pronounce crow-kai)...

That is the plural of crocus...right?
