Every year, I photograph the same crocus patch in our village. Spindly purple buds wriggle up through the soil and survive footsteps of curious dogs and children… but they had snow to contend with this time around. I thought that would lay them to rest but they survived and opened last week. Hooray!
Most of them are now a floppy, squashed mess so I’m glad I went when I did. Spring is just around the corner!
