Sunshine and Crocuses

Crocuses are always such wonderful bright heralds of spring! I was passing through Edinburgh's Princes Street Gardens today and took these photos.

Holy Crow! I cannot believe it's THAT springy in your part of the world already. Still snow here in the mid-atlantic states.
And the crO-cus -es! Sigh. Is it usually that far into spring in February in Edinburgh?

Maureen - this is pretty normal, though we have had a mild winter this year. But the Gulf Stream is still working reasonably well which usually keeps our climate much warmer you might expect for somewhere so far north....

Crocuses are mountain flowers here. I have always loved them in the Alps high valleys.

How beautiful! A sight that must have cheered up a lot of people out in the town.

Juliet, these are just beautiful. Thank you for such lovely photos. Winter has gone on long enough. Ready for some spring and right now!

They certainly look best when they are massed and when the colours are varied. The purple against the gold, with just that touch of white here and there, is perfect.

What thrilling photos! Our snow won't melt for another month at least, and March is the ugliest time of year because the snow is dirty and has lost its fluffiness. But this carpet of crocuses lifts my heart!
