Crocuses



I love seeing crocuses peaking up through the ground. They're the first flower to appear and a sure sign of spring. Growing up in Maryland, I remember these would appear in February. Here in New England, we're a month behind. These beauties opened up to show their deep yellow pollen contrasting the light purple petals in the warmth of the mid-day sun.

I need to plant some next fall. They are such a harbinger of Spring.
