The First Blooms

March 7, 2008

My first flower of the year! I saw this crocus today in downtown Boise and had to take a picture. It made me so happy to see a crocus. We used to have purple crocuses surrounding the two trees in our front yard. It was the happiest sight to see those little blooms in a ring around the tree, like little dancers. The sight of them just announces spring’s arrival, but in such a cute little unassuming way. I love how they bloom so far ahead of any other flowers – it’s still going to be a few weeks until any tulips or daffidols bloom, their stems are just barely peeking up from the groud – but the crocuses are in a hurry to get spring started. My feelings exactly.
