Now theres a thought TT how many different angles can she photo one crocus from ? As you say though - there are a lot of others poking their heads through.

One Crocus does'nt make a spring, but it certainly gives you hope for things to come,

Thanks for this sight, BB - I am admiring your display ;-)

Seriously, it means a lot - the harbinger of spring for Yorkshire! May it be the first of many. :-0

A few more coming into flower now Spritz....definitely spring on the way !

20 Feb, 2009

 

I was outside today (as usual!) and noticed how tall the snowdrops have grown since last week - and they've opened, as well. MUST be a good sign!

20 Feb, 2009

 

Have you noticed how happy the birds are now the weather is better, singing way they are! I feel Spring is on the way ..... I've got a few snowdrops coming up now that I had forgotten existed!

20 Feb, 2009

 

Hi Spritz and Dawn....today the birds have been singing their hearts out,and we found more clumps of budding crocuses,amongst the shrubs...so.tiny,almost missed them,but now spending longer outside and able to notice the smaller things we normally miss when gazing through a frosty window ! lol Spring is definitely on the march here !

20 Feb, 2009

 

A beautiful little sign of wonderful days to come I'd say !

20 Feb, 2009

 

Thats what I love about you..so positive..with so little encouragement lol
