We are eager for the first year’s bloom of crocus in our newly established Thompson Memorial Crocus Lawn! Last fall, we planted 10,000 crocus bulbs in our historic churchyard.
Some observant eyes spotted crocus blooming close to the bell tower’s left side, and a handful near the Balog family’s gravesite. Others have appeared smack in the middle of the graveyard about halfway between the Vestry house and the gravel drive.
Please realize that first year bulbs typically bloom after more established ones, so it may take a few more days of warmth and sunshine before more emerge. Right now, the blossoms are quite delicate and sporadic but in subsequent years the crocus bulbs will multiply, so the springtime display of blossoms will be quite spectacular!
Patience is a virtue…especially in gardening!
