Is it Spring Yet?

April 19 it looked like this:

April 20:

spring weather

But at least it wasn’t like this.

Today, April 21 we’re back to this:

spring crocuses

I love scenes of rebirth like this one.

I love scenes of rebirth like this one of crocuses in Christmas Fern leaves.

    Maybe that snow was just a fluke. Spring surely is here – your crocuses are blooming!

    • I think the snow was part of a long, long winter (it really can be cold for a long time where I live) but it may finally be the last snow. Thank heavens for these resilient things like crocuses and snowdrops!

  4. Gorgeous photos! So glad you shared them.

    Still crocus in your garden, do you find they last long, for me they disappear very quickly. Christina

    • Usually they come and go quickly as does everything in the spring because we go from icy winter to sizzling summer with minimal spring conditions in between. However, it really depends on the weather. The longer they have to battle cooler temperatures, the longer they look pretty. But you may be assuming my crocuses came out at a normal time, which they didn’t. Our long, cold winter has made everything open up late, so they haven’t really been out that long.

    • Also, Christina, I notice that the different types bloom earlier and later, so you could try mixing varieties and you’d get crocuses blooming for longer–they just wouldn’t be the SAME crocuses.

    The pictures are lovely. Crocus flowers are one of the best parts of spring.
