In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “A Moment in Time.”
Today’s prompt suggested that I write about the last picture I took. I should probably do this every day as it would give me an endless supply of stories.
I took this picture yesterday afternoon, when I discovered this early blooming snow crocus in my front yard the first time I set foot outdoors.
Our weather the last couple of days has been prematurely spring-like. While I’m not at all eager for winter to end–not without some SNOW!–I couldn’t help but be cheered by the sunshine and warmer temperatures. I must confess my heart lifts as I walk through the grocery store and smell potted hyacinths and daffodils. Spring is my favorite season and those early blooms are my most favorite flowers.
I had completely forgotten I even planted snow crocuses. As I did in my first two homes, I planted them randomly throughout the front yard last fall. No other gardening is so easy and yet so rewarding.
Lovely 🙂 I love the color, pretty energizing to me! thanks for sharing
Thank you for commenting! The flower brought a smile to my face then you brought another. 🙂
Yes, isn’t it crazy that it’s been feeling like spring here? I’m not ready. I love fall and winter and frankly, I’m scared for the warming up. Since our winter has been so mild so far, I’m scared the bugs will come out with a vengeance during the summer. Eeeekk!!
Good point . . . we didn’t suffer nearly as much from mosquitoes last year after the polar vortex. I hear there is snow in our future–I hope so!
Our first crocus has pushed up but not yet bloomed.
I’ve still only got the one.
