Things look up if you look down

One always feels that spring is late around here, but if you look around (and step lightly), you may see it. I saw the first crocus more than a week ago, but this is the first one that I "own". Lots of them were just "crawling" around when we visited our summer cottage yesterday.

Just like a newly opened egg for breakfast.

A fragile beauty - don't step on it!

How nice Spring is finally here! Even for us, we had coldest March in 40 years. We used to plant crocus in the US, we do not have crocus in Taiwan. Thanks for sharing these beautiful photos with us.

Wonderful, I have not seen a single one this year :-(

I like how the center is peeking out in the first shot.

Beautiful! It is amazing how quickly things blossom out when they get started and how suddenly they seem to start to bud.

so pure,

the orange stamen, any good for saffron?

Flowers are starting to bloom here as well, reaffirming that spring really is on the way.

I'm not much of a flower person - but I like the commentary!

Nydelig .... de står der så "sårbare", men tåler jammen en støyt. Både snø og kulde! Håper mine nyutsprungne krokus slipper en sånn overraskelse! Våren er en herlig tid .... nyter hvert eneste lille vårtegn!

HA en toppers helg! Klem fra Irene

The first crocus in my garden signals spring to me as well. Yours is a lovely one with the orange stamen and purple interior stripes.

Oh how very beautiful and delicate! It also looks like a little light that one might have next to one for reading by.
