Another Sign of Spring



(This picture can be enlarged by clicking on it. Clicking a second time will make it full-sized.)

Crocus blooms are usually our first sign that Spring is getting closer. There still might be more snow and cold to come, but these bright and colorful blossoms mean that warm sunny days are ahead. The little bee in the third blossom is a nice bonus.

Crocuses are the best signs of spring there are! I was excited to see already some purple heads appearing in my small front garden.
Have a great week!
