Croci in the Sun



Pale croci (or crocuses) cluster companionably, lifting upwards to soak in the warm of the sun in a week that has seen howling wind and rain, frosty mornings and even snow. Fresh green shoots. Pale blossoms. Simple and lovely.

Linking with Sunlit Sunday hosted by Karen of My Little Home and Garden

I was just admiring the yellow crocuses on the blog of a certain someone in your life, and now find these lovely lavender ones on yours. I'm trying to remember the colours of those planted in my garden last fall; you're starting to make me long to see them, Lorrie. Patience.

I hope your week is a beautiful one. Thank you for sharing the crocuses at Sunlit Sunday.

I'm only finding them in my archives, maybe I will print out some photos, and place them in the garden, to make spring jealous.

Growing up in California I never knew the beauty of crocus.
When I moved to Kansas and I saw them come up through the
snow I was enchanted. What beautiful harbinger of Spring.
