Can It Be That Spring Is Coming?

Crocus in our side flower bed. March 12, 2010.

Yesterday (Friday) was dreary and rainy up here on the Plateau.  That wasn’t a bad thing since I had much to do after being gone for several days.

But in the late afternoon the rain stopped and the sun came out for a while.  I took the opportunity to quickly walk the yard and was very pleasantly surprised to see a clump of crocuses about ready to open.  It seems as if it has been forever since we had any color in our yard.

I also noticed that hyacinths, daffodils and tulips have broken through the ground.  And what is even more exciting some of our roses are starting to show signs of life.  Can it be that Spring may actually get here?


Today I’m grateful for the promise contained in spring flowers.

    I love this crocus photo…its so “springy”…our weather has been cold and rainy for the last few days.

    Oh I am so excited for you. those plants poking up through the ground make me know that it is Spring. I think My favorite season just because of new growth. –Fall would be second choice.

    We have had such a warm winter as opposed to yours that everything seems to be blooming at once already. My Crocus are done although the Helleborus are going to town and I just noticed that my Hosta are poking up. Crazy eh? MB
