Day 109/365: First Flower of Spring

I’m so excited! On a gorgeous warm sunny Saturday last week I cleaned out the flower beds and look what I found. The first flowers of spring, a spring crocus! Yes, it takes little to get me excited, but this is a sign of spring, a forecast of what is to come, warm days, sunny skies. Oh, spring! Oh happy day! Next will be the daffodils and then my favorite spring flower, tulips.

    1. The snow covered crocus was at the end of it’s prime anyways, but I took it’s picture as a comparison. I think the other ones are just fine. It’s not really cold, just barely 32F, just enough to snow. Got just a ground covering and it was gone in a few hours.
