This crocus invaded an area by the tomato patch, about twenty feet from the original crocus bed. After I noticed it, I noticed a round hole in the earth near it, about three-eighths of an inch across. There are plenty more:

The earth here is pretty soft, though only informally mulched over the winter with blown leaves and dead vegetation that I just raked away. So what’s making the holes? Little mice? Grubs? Worms? Do the diggers come down from above, or up from below? Whatever’s doing it, frost in the soil is surely gone, now. Good news!

The quack (switch) grass is another invader. There’s no cloverseed at Park’s yet, else I’d be sowing it, now that it’s raked. Clover makes quick work of slower grasses.
