    Earliest Harbinger of Spring

    Snowdrops make me so happy. I don't know why more people don't grow them; they are easy and not very expensive and they come up year after year.

    Last year, I had a few and like you, they made me so so happy. So I bought another 25 or was it 50? Can't wait to see them come up.

    Nice! Oh and one other thing, critters don't seem to eat them. What's not to love?

    And they are earlier than crocuses! Just when I need an assurance that spring will indeed be eventually coming.

    My harbinger is longer days. If I don't stop anywhere on the way I now get home at dusk not dark.

    Snow drops beneath the oak tree in my front yard 3/19/21.

    About half the turf in this neck of the woods is bare of snow-cover now.

    Crocuses rather than snowdrops in my yard.

    Mud in mine, but that's still a great harbinger of spring IMHO.
