Today it is snowing again. The snow is once more covering the flowers that I saw peeking out of the ground only yesterday.
It was exciting to see these beautiful flowers that proclaim winter is almost over. Now I’m hoping this snow will not harm them and as soon as the temperature climbs above freezing again – which it is supposed to do in a couple of days – they will still be standing to brighten my yard.
These flowers (crocuses) are one of the first to bloom in the spring. We planted two different colors. One is the purple seen in the picture above and the other is white with just edges of purple.
And all the woods are alive with the murmur and sound of Spring,
And the rose-bud breaks into pink on the climbing briar,
And the crocus-bed is a quivering moon of fire
Girdled round with the belt of an amethyst ring.
