Crocus

End of Winter

 

This year the crocus seems to have multiplied a bit.  I am always amazed that these guys pop up through the pine needles, leaves, sticks and assorted detritus of Winter. / I haven’t posted for a long time.  (See previous post referring to the “posting/karma congestion ratio”.)  The end of the Winter has been difficult in some ways, and the bleakness of that season had carried on into Spring.  Seeing these flowers come back year after year is a terrifically reassuring occurrence, and one that ushers in a more hopeful time.
