First Signs of Spring-Purple Crocus

14 Comments

The crocus have come and gone for this spring, but it’s still wintry cold out there. These little beauties from a couple of years ago are a reminder that spring is indeed coming. 🙂

It’s said that when the Robins return spring has sprung. The Robins have been back for about three weeks, but it has still been very wintry. Seeing them hopping around the yard with their rusty, red chests puffed out did however, give the promise of spring.

A more definite sign are these little beauties. I came across a huge patch of them on my walk a couple of days ago. They were growing in a vacant lot where once a devoted gardener lived and with a loving hand planted them all over their front lawn. The house and it’s occupants may be long gone, but these purple blooms popping up every year means they will never be forgotten. It may be snowing today, but having seen these crocus I know spring is very, very near.

  5. Bonjour ou Bonsoir ELIZABETH Belles fleurs
    Si votre cœur est désemparé, une bonne nouvelle peut le ranimer
    Si vos yeux ont envie de pleurer, laissez-les allez sans retenue
    Les émotions ne se commandent pas
    Si vous riez et que la peine vous meurtrit
    Ne changez pas d’horizon
    La musique peut vous aider à garder la bonne humeur
    Si la passion n’est plus comme avant
    Lui l’amour est en vous et vos sentiments s’enflamment et feront plaisir aux autres


    Si vous n’êtes pas poète, ni écrivain , gardez une âme d’artiste
    Et faites valoir vos ressentis avec une pointe de fantaisie
    Si l’on ne vous découvre que des défauts c’est que vous n’avez pas changé

    Et que l’autre personne qui vous critique a surement autant de défauts que vous
    Si moi vous trouvez que je ne suis plus comme avant
    Je peux vous dire que je n’ai pas changé, je suis restée conforme à mes idées

    Mais je pense que le temps est compté et que les années s’effilent doucement

    Alors mieux vos encore en profiter

    Bisous bonne journée ou bonne soirée

    Votre ami BERNARD
