First Flowers of the Year!

Look! Even in North Dakota we're beginning to experience the first glimpses of Spring (even if snow IS in the forecast today.)

This is scilla, those tiny little flowers that can spread all over (but way better looking than crabgrass).

Beautiful color - glad you are getting at least a glimpse of Spring before more snow.

And she can pull a fast one...it IS snowing here as I type this...and accumulating. Sigh...
