I know that's almost impossible to see, but that's something green popping up through the ground! Hoku and I took a walk today (despite the fact that I've been sick for the past 3 days and wanted to do nothing more than lay on the couch) and I spotted this on south side of a six foot fence. There was another little clump nearby. I'm guessing it's crocus. The house is at the end of my block, so we should be able to check progress nearly daily!
