Beautiful scenes, Mark and Trond, and congrats, Todd!

Here's the state of the crocus bloom here... close, despite the snow and cold (-9 deg C last night).  Ugh, what a climate!

Nice display, Lori.  I had always wondered if the tricolors might show through to the back sides of the petals of C. sieberi 'Tricolor'.  Thanks for that shot of the buds that depict it.
