A couple bulbs are up -
#1 is a fairly uncommon scilla - S. mischtschenkoana
#2 is a species crocus, always my first

#3 is a strange early spring ephemeral called Scopiola carniolica. I think of spring ephemerals as these dainty early spring bloomers in the woodland. This one is certainly early, but it\'s a beast. It zooms up remarkably within a few days with blooms forming immediately after emergence. They start as these odd up-facing yellow bells, then a few days later switch to dangling bells, brownish on outside, yellow on inside. Only for the lovers of weird plants, I think. It\'s been easy and reliable for super early spring interest.
