First Flowers

I always check out this garden. The southern exposure and reflection of heat by the wall helps these crocuses show their faces earlier than others. While I love the flowers in my house, I rejoice at the first signs of flowers outside. The warmer than normal weather continues, coaxing the shoots out of the ground. Soon more flowers will appear.


  1. The earliest flowers, even if very tiny, are the most encouraging and inspiriting. We can’t hold back our excitement for the upcoming spring.

  2. The contrast between the stone wall and the pretty yellow flowers is beautiful!!
    So lovely!

  3. I think it's so much fun to see the blooms appearing. Now if only there isn't a hard frost!
