First Crocus

It is a happy day in late winter when the Crocus get up the nerve to bloom. 
Our first crocus braved the cold wind to bloom yesterday and today as the sun shone with great exuberance.

  1. Congratulations, Lisa. Looks like you see the light from a crocus at the end of the winter tunnel. Enjoy.

  4. Wow! How beautiful they are! Spring has surely sprung! I've been looking for mine, but they aren't showing their faces here!

  5. Oh how lovely! I didn't realise that there were yellow crocuses, I've only seen the mauve and the white varieties before. What a wonderful sight to welcome early spring.

  6. I love that cheery yellow. Snowdrops are elegant and so welcome because they are so early, but Crocuses are happiness. Can't wait for mine to emerge from the frozen earth!

  7. Delighted for you, Lisa and what a sunshine colour it is too! I am a crocus fan as you know :-) I didn't know I had my first crocus out until walking round the garden for GBBD. Saw my first big bumble bee today :-D

  8. I imagine your lovely crocus is about to be buried under a lot of snow. Mine are finally coming up and blooming now too.
