I have different colors planted throughout my lawn, which adds a shock of purple, white and yellow at the end of winter. Absolutely amazing, although difficult digging in my rocky ground.

When the sun starts to melt the snow from the south side of our house in early spring, crocus begin to peak their buds up through the straw mulch. They are the first heralders of Spring here in Southcentral Alaskan flower beds.
