The other day I asked my sister if she had any crocus blooming and she replied, "No. I don't like them. They remind me that it's cold." Or more specifically, "No, they just remind me that's it's fricking cold out."
I get that. But what I like about crocus is that they remind me that the worst of the cold is behind us and that spring is coming. And they make the bees happy.
Here are random crocus photos I've taken over the years.
|Yes. That is dandelion foliage.|
|Look who the sunshine woke up!|
They're reliable. They come back every year, despite my neglect.
|This one is protecting itself from the rain and waving at you!|
They do have their charm, don't they?
