Crocus


A sure sign that spring is around the corner - blooming crocus! I took this on Sunday morning. The 3 yellow-ish buds are sure to be taller and almost opened by now with the sun that we had Sunday afternoon and this morning.

  2. I never cease to be amazed how these beautiful spring bulbs will start coming up out of the ground when it is still freezing temps outside. And how glad I am. They bring such beauty to the bare landscape, hoping and waiting for Spring as we see them popping up!

  12. The promise of Spring in our gray worlds. Here in the Sacramento Valley I see some daffodil buds, a week or so yet until they bloom.

  17. Good choice for the letter "C". I live near Toronto, Ontario Canada and we just went through a week of above zero celcius. The Crocus were fooled into poking their sprouts up through the surface. Now we are back well below zero. Apparently They will survive.

  20. What a lovely sight. I saw a bank of snowdrops at the weekend which is always cheering, but now I am going to keep my eyes peeled for crocus.
