Do you see what I see?

Every year, I take a photo of these determined little bulbs that push their way out of the ground as soon as the snow melts outside the back door of the Daily Sentinel. 

Every year, I identify them as crocuses.  I'm proved wrong a few weeks later, when the real crocuses pop up and start blooming on their very first day out of the ground, while these gradually get taller and bloom a few weeks later and I realize they're daffodils. 

So I'm staking my reputation on the line here and saying these are not crocuses. If I'm wrong, they'll be blooming by Monday, so that's a win. If I'm right, the crocuses won't be too far behind, so it's still a win. And these will be blooming in another month or so, so it's a double-whammy win.
