Welcome Spring Crocus

I am amazed each spring with these little heirloom crocus. They are the second flower to bloom, after the snowdrops. Their color is so vibrant. They are a sturdy little flower, withstanding frost and snow, yet they appear delicate.

They grow in profusion under the cedar trees, a carpet of green, lavender, and purple. Each year there are more. I never know where a new plant may appear. They grow in the grass, in walkways, between rocks and bricks, but mostly under the cedar trees.

You have got to be kidding me!!! I'm "dying" to take pictures of new flowers. Here we are having a wintery mix of cold, snow, sleet, and freezing rain. But, Spring will come. It always does!!!! Thank you so much for dropping by my porch for a visit. It was truly delightful to see what you had to show on your blog today.
