The First Flowers of Spring




No, this photo didn't come from my archives. I was looking for something worth taking a picture of this afternoon when I spotted these flowers starting to bloom and, at a distance, thought it must have been some kind of yellow yard ornament. But upon closer inspection, I realized that my Grandma's crocuses are indeed blooming. Goodbye winter!

That's an absolutely wonderful picture! I can't believe you guys have flowers out already! We still have snow here...sometimes it gets up to a foot in some places, although now there are quite a few spots of earth showing. I love mud! XD

Squeaks.

Lovely photo, I'll have to go out looking for spring flowers where I live.

Beautiful flowers and focus! We just got snow/sleet/hail here so, if there were any flowers coming up, they're gone now. :-(

That certain thrill when one spots the first flowers of Spring! Nicely done.

There's something so brave and vibrant about crocuses.
