Something to say about it.................


It takes courage to be crocus minded. I would rather wait till June, like wise roses, when the hazards of winter are safely behind, and I am expected and everything is ready for roses. But crocuses? Highly irregular. Knifing through hard-frozen ground and snow, sticking their necks out, because they believe in Spring and have something personal and emphatic to say about it.”

That quote made me smile, because it's so true! Are there any grittier, more optimistic flowers? :c)

I'm always amazed at those bulbs that are able to bloom even in the harshest conditions. Nothing blooming around here today. Just dust, dust and more dust. Really disgusting. Best wishes, Tammy
