granny squares work and chat friends 2020 new thread in Crochet-Alongs (CALs) Posted 6 hours ago When we first moved here we planted tons of perennials some started from relative's, now passed, garden offerings and I'm so glad we made that choice because even in years when I haven't been up to doing tons of gardening the flowers always come. This year I've only had crocus so far. It just hasn't warmed up enough yet for the early spring flowers. The crocus have been known to come through the snow. One year I planted tulips in all kinds of colors because I love the bright cheer in the spring. Some made it but the squirrels have a thing for tulip bulbs so some have disappeared over the years, too.
