Crocus Vigil Day 10: Green Busting Through

I'm a day late for Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day this month (always the 15th of the month), but since nothing is really blooming I think that's okay. Here's my first Bloom Day post!

These things are going way slower than I thought. Once I saw the little sprouts peaking through, I thought I would have blooms within a week. Spring is taking its time, and I'm learning more about how these tiny bulbs emerge. They're my first bulbs in my first yard in my first spring in my house!

It starts with a pale yellow-white bullet point that pierces through the soil, and then the bullet breaks open releasing strings of slender green leaves.
