Yellow Crocus and warbler rump!

I'd been waiting to see when my first crocus would bloom this winter. The cold weather really slowed them down. I finally saw a single yellow snow crocus in the front yard on Jan. 26. Today I found this nice clump blooming near the mailbox. I have planted crocus bulbs in the yard for nearly 30 years, they are always such a pleasure to see each winter.

This morning I enjoyed seeing a pair of Yellow-rumped Warblers visiting the suet feeder. They may be small, but they don't put up with other birds!
