Yesterday this snow crocus emerged without any snow.
Today it's even more beautiful blanketed in the white stuff.
Nature is amazing, that's for sure. To think a delicate flower like a this will happily shake off the snow without issue is something else.
I can't wait until this cold spell passes and we see more spring bulbs sprouting.
Welcome, wild harbinger of spring!
To this small nook of earth;
Feeling and fancy fondly cling
Round thoughts which owe their birth
To thee, and to the humble spot
Where chance has fixed thy lowly lot.
Bernard Barton—To a Crocus.
