The first crocuses are in bloom. This morning they were buds and after a couple of hours with sun, the buds started to open. This time of year, when most plants are still asleep, even a common flower like crocus, really makes me happy. It makes me feel alive.
Life is slowly coming back. Both gardens and people thrive under the sun - especially this year, after all the heavy rain and storms that we've had.
It's so fascinating to watch the flowers open. The colour of buds and flowers change with the light. - How I love the first flowers of spring!
