Spring is poised to Spring

I noticed these guys pocking through last Monday, the first sign of spring. I love the crocus and they never fail to please. I am not waiting for white, blue and purple crocus, soon to follow I'm sure!

I wish we had crocuses, but not for another month and a half yet. I love the raindrops!!

Kala said...

Awesome. We don't see these for another month here in Northern Illinois. Great capture.

Great photo. Its always great to see new growth after the winter. I imagine you get to see it a bit more than we do with our moderate temperature, evergreen plants and no snow.

I am inpatiently waiting for my crocuses to appear, but it will still be a few weeks. I especially love the yellow ones. Thanks for sharing!

Great perspective and lighting on this one. Ah for spring!

A very cheerful and welcome picture! Even the water droplets - since we have freezing temperatures and snow again here!

I love crocuses. They remind me of my childhood, for some reason.

Such a sweet welcoming sign of spring, peeking their perky yellow heads up for all the world to see.

I had to go to your profile and see where you are located - crocus - a wonderful spring thought.
These are lovely. Excellent macros.

Thanks for visiting my snowflake shot and your nice comment.
