Crocus, narcissus and tulip planters come to life

The spring bulbs I planted back in November (narcissus, iris and tulip initially, augmented later with crocus) have started to show considerable life:

So much so that I’ve decided to start removing the netting that was preventing other local cats (and maybe a fox) from digging around in them. Above you can see Crocus “Spring Beauty” the most advanced, with Tulipa “Temple of Beauty” surprisingly early, and occasional Narcissus “Pipit” in between.

I moved this green planter from our decking—which can barely be seen from the house—to just by the back door, and I’m really glad I did so: every time I pass it, the deep indigo-white mosaic on the crocus flowers catches my eye.
