Happy First Day of Spring!

“The crocuses (croci??) decided to bloom exactly on the first day of spring!”

Where did winter go (or did it even arrive?)? I can’t believe its already the first day of spring! It certainly felt like spring today with the sun shining brightly and the warm winds blowing.  Since the weather was so nice, I decided to do a bit of spring cleaning in the yard and in the process, realized that the crocuses had started to bloom. I’ve never really seen them bloom this early, usually they would bloom around April.

Since crocuses aren’t the most hardy of flowers, I decided to take their pictures while they were still fresh (tomorrow will apparently be 26 degrees Celcius and that could potentially wreak havoc on those delicate petals). Too bad these aren’t the saffron-producing type of saffron, I could have made a small fortune (or a big pot of paella… mmm…). Enjoy!
