Flowers From Our Yard: Pickwick Crocus



(This picture can be enlarged by clicking on it.)

I'm starting to get Spring Fever. We have several clumps of Pickwick Crocus in our long flower bed. This is one of those clumps; the picture was taken late last week.

I only wish the crocus would last a little longer than a few days.

Very nice. I do love crocus although those early bloomers often get buried here in an April snowstorm.

What a beautiful photo! Spring is slowly creeping towards Maine I think. We still have some snow on the ground but the mud is starting to take over!

Tracy said...

First off George, what a lovely photo! I love the veins within the flowers.
Second, Happy Belated Birthday to you. I hope you enjoyed your trip to the falls.
Third, I want to thank you for being such a wonderful husband to my friend Betsy. She is a lovely person whom I have grown to think rather highly of--one of those friends who has settled into my life and I truly value her in my life. Therefore, it is with those thoughts that I thank you for loving her so intensely~

Sweet flowers, we just received another 2 foot of snow on Saturday so I won't be seeing many flowers for a while yet.
