Last year, I had my first bloom of Spring on March 28, 2015... this year, I've got crocus blooms on March 12, 2016. The first day of Spring is March 20, so that means I have winter blooms. Pretty cool!
All of the bulbs came back - some had more sprouts than before and some had fewer. For some reason the west side of the yard is struggling, and the east side is winning. The bulbs up by the electrical box in the front yard even came back after I disturbed them re-burying the internet cable.
