First Crocus Calls Me

First Crocus Called To Me

Said Spring is here.

Called my name loud and clear.

Said time is wasting. Get to work. Buds are everywhere.



Second Crocus…

All of these pictures were taken on this one Sunny Sunday.

I’m linking with Karen at My Little Home and Garden for Sunlit Sunday 

and with Mary at Little Red House for Mosaic Monday

    Love your mosaic of the buds on the trees and bushes. Love the crocus and star flower too. So pretty.

    Hello, Chris
    You have so many beautiful signs of spring included in your post. It certainly will be gorgeous when more of the buds burst into bloom. I especially like the last photo of the crocus showing its array of colours.
    Welcome to Sunlit Sunday. Thank you so much for linking this week.

    I love the mosaic of all the buds. We don’t get any of those plants/bushes/trees in our area, unfortunately. It must be gorgeous when they are all in bloom.

    I admire someone who gets down in the dirt for our photo entertainment. Many thanks. That’s a lovely variety of crocus – so often they’re purple or yellow – so nice to see a lovely white one.

    Happy Easter! Spring is slowly showing it’s colors. I love the last shot showing the safe cocoon of the inside of the flower.

    Chris, that macro of the white crocus is breathtaking… blue ribbon material! Your clematis are potting up nicely… should be ready to travel in the mail this week! The blue mist still hasn’t poked through the ground though… strange, since everything else here is blooming wildly!
