While waiting for the wildflowers…

Filed under: Flowers — Tags: — montucky @ 9:25 pm



  1. Wildflowers are lovely, but there’s not a thing wrong with a beautiful crocus. I especially like the way part of the flower is slightly out of focus. It seems to emphasize the flower’s emergence, its coming into bloom. What a nice image with which to start the day!

    • The Crocus has its very own place at the beginning of spring, and it’s one of my favorites.

  2. I’m still waiting to see a crocus. They’ve just begun showing themselves as shoots breaking through the crust.

    • A couple of sunny days after the rains and they popped right up a few days ago. I just checked my archives, and they are almost exactly on time!

  3. You got that beauty before I did! No sign of them here yet. Spring is really slow coming this year. Thanks for adding a bit of color to my world today…it’s pretty drab outside my window. 😦

    • A Crocus really does provide that early spring color, doesn’t it!

  4. You’re ahead of us! The ground is bare, but frozen, and nary a green thing is showing yet.

    • These are just about normal for here. You were really hit by winter this year.

  5. I love crocus! Spring is such a beautiful season. I can’t wait to see the trees bloom as well 🙂 Have a great weekend!

    • As we start getting into April, there will be large numbers of new blooms showing up. I love this season!

    • Seems to me that the bright color of the crocus is exactly what we need going into spring! Have a great weekend!

    • Thanks Teresa. It’s the most photogenic blossom that I know of.

  9. I had never seen Crocus before moving to SLC…and then started looking forward to them in late winter, as I knew what it meant when they finally arrived….and now? Well, the Hedgehog cacti are blooming their brilliant red flowers….in a different land entirely.

    • There are few things that can compare with the Sonoran Desert in spring.
