Today's Flowers: Spring Has Croaked

From 179CANON

Brothers and sisters of the blogosphere, let's hear a hearty, "Amen!" The crocuses have finally pressed their way through the mud to bring a little color to spring here in sunny Connecticut. We came across clumps of these little guys in my parents' yard on Saturday, when we stopped in to do a little springtime cleanup and maybe work some winter-softened muscles. Our bedtime arrived early Saturday night. Maybe the muscles will forgive?

Today's Flowers

Comments

  1. Doesn't it feel wonderful to get out into the garden again?? I always feel like I have come alive this time of year. Those muscles will probably be telling you they weren't quite ready for all that movement. Good for you though. Love those sweet little crocus that hearald spring. Such brave little things.

  3. I have certainly loved getting outside more but we need warmer days. Quite a few days my Crocuses didn't even open.
