The crocus are here! The crocus are here!

This is a beautiful sight.  I look forward to the appearance of these lovely purple flowers every spring, because they mean winter really is almost over, something everyone in Western New York is ready for when the crocus appear.

They are not large flowers and they don’t last long, but while they are here, they brighten my day with the golden centers promising more sunshine and warmth, longer days, and time to take a deep breath and enjoy being outdoors unencumbered by heavy coats, mittens, and scarves.

I don’t remember seeing them this early before, but welcome them with joy.
