Flower of the Day – Crocus

In anticipation of Spring…
My contribution to Cee’s Flower of the Day Challenge

Towards the end of February and the beginning of March, I always looked for signs of crocuses in our front yard. A first sign of Spring. After tramping through the soggy grass, I’d discover them poking up out of the ground despite the cold weather or lingering patches of snow. It wasn’t long before they were in full bloom.

A family of crocuses appeared every March right next to the maple tree. A hardy little bunch, they managed to muscle their way through massive amounts of roots, thatch, rock hard soil and mulch. Year after year.

No gardening effort required on my part.
Very independent.
I liked that.
