spring arrives with the crocus

There's this little crocus patch, up at the very back of our backyard, that I can just see from the kitchen sink.

I don't know how they got there, these little purple flowers, but I love them, and I keep my eye out for their annual blooming.

And this morning I saw them and decided to go photograph them.

It's just a little thing, walking up to the very back yard (It's terraced) and taking a few photos, but it made me smile.

As did today's weather, which is glorious and mild. I have windows open and I'm barefoot. Glorious.

Spring. It's here. We may still have some winter left (though I don't see anything cold in our forecast, yay!), but spring has begun. The crocus are always a first glimpse.

Yes, please, thank you.
