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.

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!

Crocus in colder climates must seem like a miracle to those so looking forward to spring. What beautiful little flowers they are! Lovely macro!

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.

coming up very early, can't wait for it to grow I suppose

You have crocuses!! Nothing here, yet, but I shall go out into the garden later and search again. As you say, such a sure sign of spring being around the corner, and so cheering!

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.

No crocuses here yet and I wouldn't mind them waiting for another month. I love the winter weather.

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.
