Another rainy day with no sun but this little bed of crocuses that I came across when I walked down to the post box at the other end of the street made me feel warm and fuzzy inside.
Encore une journée pluvieuse sans soleil mais ce petit parterre de crocus croisé lorsque je me suis rendue à la boîte aux lettres à l’autre bout de notre rue m’a fait chaud au coeur.

Lovely! It’s going to be weeks before we see crocuses here.
Hooray for crocuses! Every garden should have them. They are tough, require no maintenance and appear in flower just when you thought winter was never going to end.
@William: I know you love winter, but it really seems a little long in Ottawa.
@Susan: We have snowdrops and daffodils in our little wood, but I think I’ll add some crocuses for next year!
I have a white crocus flowering in my garden now. Perhaps it isn’t a crocus.
I understand the warm fuzzy feeling. I get that when I see pics of fields of poppies, parklands of daffodils and lane ways of bluebells.
Hi Helen. It’s a bit strange that you should have a crocus in your garden in the autumn in Queensland. I wonder what it really is? Maybe Susan knows. I’ll never forget my first poppies!
There are autumn flowering species, so it could be a crocus. There are also lookalikes that are called crocuses but technically aren’t, so maybe it isn’t a crocus.
