The crocuses seem to have taken a bit of a battering in the storms lately, but I found a couple that were still intact. Sadly no purple ones, as they seemed to be in a worse state than these golden yellow ones. At a bit of an angle but standing up to the storm Not…… Continue reading Crocus
The strength of nature always surprises me. No matter how dark and cold the winter gets, spring always comes. Sometimes its a little later than usual, but still it comes. Spring makes me feel hopeful. After the darkness comes light, after the cold comes warmth, after the emptiness comes an abundance of life. No matter…… Continue reading Nature’s Strength
Crocuses are emerging at the moment. We don’t seem to have any golden ones around this year. But I think I like these purple ones best anyway.
I dare to dream that spring may soon be here. I dream of an end to cold mornings, an end to hand’s skin dried out by the weather, an end to layers and layers and still feeling chilly.

At the weekend I was pleased to find some Crocuses emerging. This yellow one was just peeking up out of the grass at the base of a hedge. I hope to see it open next time I walk that way 🙂
