One of my favorite things in Spring is the appearance of the first Spring flowers. Since I was away, then here and very sick at the same time that more cold weather rolled in, I never got to share with you my favorite flowers.
Crocuses! I like them especially because the ones in my yard were ones my Grandmother planted many, many years ago. The fun thing about the crocuses is that over the years, they’ve migrated. Well, I guess I should day they’ve been migrated. Many generations of squirrels have dug them up in the mistaken belief that they are acorns. When they realize their mistake, they toss them aside and move on. I’ve actually seen them do this! So the crocuses are not exactly in an organized garden. In fact, they’re all over the place. That’s half the fun.
Due to being sick, I missed the opportunity to take any photos of them when they first came up. I was sad. However, today I got my second chance.
The first one I found was a white one almost in the middle of the yard…at least 10 feet from where it should have been.
The second one was tiny and purple.
This one was harder to see and I might have missed it if Ralph hadn’t spied it.
This one was at least 15 fee from where it should have been, under a bush and almost buried under left over leaves.
Now that I’ve actually documented the fact that there are flowers in my yard, I almost feel like Spring is here!
