Fair Weather

“In blue and yellow from its grave
Springs up the crocus fair”
–Harriet Beecher Stowe

Yesterday I went for a walk in the sunny, blustery, 40-degree weather and was charmed and ecstatic to discover cheerful, bright little crocuses peeping up in a few yards bordering the woods. I might have done a little dance right there if I weren't afraid people would think I'm mad. Also, the big belly was only affording me enough energy to finish my walk, not perform jigs.

There's still snow covering the paths in the woods and piled up in many other spots, but our yard is nearly clear of it, and crocuses are unassuming yet...heraldic.

Next winter, remind me and I'll post you some flowers I've picked from So-Cal. :)

Helpful, aint I?
