Saturday Snapshot: Crocus

Saturday Snapshot is hosted by West Metro Mommy.




Out of the detritus of winter
A sign of new life 
Tentative, but sure.
Bright green, a hint of violet,
a new bloom.

There is no better sight in the spring time as this means the plants survived the winter :)

Our first flower for this year. And the rosebush has new buds :)

Okay, that was weird...I entered a comment, there were two of them, so I deleted one...and they both disappeared. So if two reappear, that is why...LOL

I love how the poem illustrates what is happening with the crocuses. Here is MY SATURDAY SNAPSHOT POST

What a joy it is to see those first crocus sprouts -- even though it means my allergies will be flourishing too. Beautiful photos and poetry.

Wish I could see the flowers and birds in Texas!

Yhanks, Sandra. Hope the allergies are mild this spring, tho my hubby is already sneezing.

Harvee said...

Yes, finally!

I am hoping for great things, Louise. They are so pretty but don't last very long.
