While it's true that all the rain beat down the crocus patch in the front yard, there were others that survived!
As I was washing dishes this morning, I looked up through the window and spotted a few bright spots of purple on the hill in the back yard. Crocus!
I thought I had dug all the bulbs up last year and transplanted them to the front yard. But some of those tiny bulbs hid from me in the Fall and decided to bloom all on their own. So I was able to take some crocus portraits this year after all.
Here's one of the rare variety in my yard - white with purple stripes.
Maybe I should wash dishes more often. I would have seen them sooner.
