A gift for St. Patrick's Day...

And what a fine gift it is, indeed!  A bit of natural green, embellished with shades of lavender & yellow...a welcome sight for sure to give me hope that SPRING will be here soon.  It's even 67 & sunny today...but the air is still a bit too chilly for me.  I can't wait for balmy breezes...even if they no longer come to me off the Pacific Ocean.

These crocus bloom quite faithfully each March...over the years they have naturalized throughout the front lawn of this house. I remember the first year they came up all over the lawn...the summer before, my Dad had planted a new lawn & in tilling the soil, he had chopped up Mom's crocus bulbs with the tiller...so we didn't know if we'd even have crocus the folowing spring. They used to be in a circle in the middle of the yard...I'm not sure why, but they were. Much better scattered casually across the entire lawn, I think.
Until next time...enjoy these crocus that have grown into a free form heart...Springtime Love!
