First Crocuses

February 01, 2015

After walking the dog this afternoon, I was picking up branches in the front yard -

and I was surprised to see several of my volunteer crocuses blooming. 

 

 

It seems I'm always surprised to see them.  Today I thought this must be the earliest they've bloomed. 

 

 

I always think they're earlier than usual.  But I found some pictures I'd taken of them blooming January on 29, 2013.

 

 

One year I took some pictures of beautiful clumps of crocuses in a friend's yard the first of March.

And the next day I was taking pictures of a snow storm.


 

First a howling blizzard woke us,

Then the rain came down to soak us,

And now before the eye can focus -

Crocus.
