Today's Flowers # 34

My friend Luiz from Brazil does the Today's Flowers Meme, check it out. Come and join with your flower photos. Sunday at 7 GMT is the post time.

The Crocus in the neighbor hood are ready to put on a neat Spring show. The weather is at freezing each night so they are waiting for better weather to show their true beauty. These three types are all around one tree on my walk. This deep purple one will be really neat.
There are several group of the yellow.
My favorite is the white with the lavender at the stem.
These are much bigger then the ones in my yard so I await the true show when they decide to open the petals and ask the bees for a visit. I also haven't seen any more bees since the weather has gotten colder.
You can see some great flowers from around the world by visiting the above site.

I'm always so happy to see the crocus flowers in the spring, and these are great. They are all pretty and I think I like the deep purple ones the best.

Tarolino said...

Oh it will be such a spot of joy when they all open up some sunny day. Nothing like adding colour to the surroundings with such a lovely bunch of crocuses.

Crocus are so delightful. Just wanted to say thank you for making your blog so encouraging to others. I tried out this whole flower thing this week,a little intimidating at first but it has been interesting and enjoyable. I keep coming in from my work and checking on the flowers posted.

While you have a wealth of crocuses to gladden your heart, My drought ridden garden has produced one single autumn crocus from two great clumps...ah well, at least something still shows a sign of life.
