During many cold nights and snowy, cloudy days these little Crocus waited for one sunny day.

New arrival

Just two days ago I went to a flower bed on the east side of our house to check a crocus that has historically been the first one here to open each spring. It was still buried in a snow bank a foot deep. Yesterday, my wife advised me that there is now one blooming on the west side of the house: I hadn’t even known it was there!

A drink of water

A drink of water

Last night when I went into the kitchen for a drink of water this scene just seemed to catch my eye. The plant sitting in a pot in front of the kitchen window was given to us by a dear friend back in November and these are its third set of blooms. The white image of a buck is a decal on the window glass that is there to help keep birds from flying into the window. The photo was taken from about 10 feet away through a 70 – 300mm lens.

A brief moment

Delphinium bud

This is a bud on a delphinium that chose to bloom right before a period of very cold weather accompanied by a foot of snow. I was pleased that I caught it in its brief moment of beauty.

Rainy day Crocus

This one picked a dark and rainy day on which to open. It had opened only two or three minutes before the photo was taken.
