Spring is in the air

But not for long I'm afraid. These little flowers (Crocus) are coming up everywhere and are a
"Promise for spring".

We don't have anything up yet. We were warm for a week and got rain and now we are going back down to near zero. It will be a while until I have anything as pretty as this picture you took.

We've just come through two days of blizzard. Spring is a long way off. Thanks for sharing yours. The light penetrating the petals is lovely.
