First Signs of Spring

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.

  2. 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!!

  3. Our first crocus has pushed up but not yet bloomed.
