What Happened to the Crocuses?

That was my horrified thought when I had a look at those presented in my last post. Not one single blossom was to be seen anymore. Vanished. Completely. So much for never having enough crocuses in my garden …

As a result of the mild winter, the garden is full of baby slugs that are having a good time on my crocuses, particularly the yellow ones for some reason. Usually I’m rather careful with predictions, but it seems quite likely that this won’t be the last time that I lament about my slug problem this year.

    Oh, how terrible! One thing I have learned as a gardener is a mild winter can be a curse as well as a blessing. You usually don’t find out about the cursed survivors of a mild winter until you see the damage they’ve wrought.
