Crocuses

These are the crocuses in Edinburgh's Meadows this time last year. When I walked through the Meadows yesterday the crocuses were barely out!

And now we're off to Perth for a few days!

Lovely reminder that there was a Spring, once, far away.

We have lost things in the garden this year to the frost and cold that have survived perfectly happily the previous twelve years.
Have a good time.

Last spring was the same here...this year it is early. Crocus always make me smile...

My crocuses have started to show. My fratileries are nowhere to be seen :(

I'm finally starting to see "winter" pansies around here, even though our winter is effectively over. I hope your crocuses come up nicely, albeit late.

Have a good time in Perth, and take pictures!

What a nice sight to soothe my frayed nerves at the end of a tiresome day at work. As good as any tonic I'd say. Thanks Crafty and have a good trip.

I used to have crocuses in the garden but then they didn't appear one year and have never come back since.

Enjoy Perth. I lived there for a while, 25 years ago but haven't been back since.

Lovely crocus pics. Ours have suddenly come out this week. Enjoy Perth. There is much of interest in that area...

Have a wonderful time in Perth!

These are lovely ... and I see that what's growing in my yard ISN'T crocus for sure now. I'm pretty sure mine is 'freesia'. Thanks for helping me sort this out. I learn a lot from my virtual friends ;-)
Hugs and blessings,

These are always the first flowers to bloom in the yard, then my daffodils, then the tulips. Yay for Spring.
