Just in case anyone is still wondering, the name of the little flower in my last post is Nemophila maculata — Baby Blue Eyes, Five Spot. Thanks to my friend Deb Stevens for leading me to the answer.
Last week we had over 14 inches of snow on the ground. Then it rained and melted about half of it. But it was a short lived reprieve. It then sleeted, turned to snow and dumped another 12 inches. And to think I used to love winter and the white stuff that comes with it. Three days ago it rained and rained, melting all the white stuff. Yesterday it was a lovely 56 degrees. Today it’s in the 60’s. I had to go tramping along the creek to blow away the winter cobwebs. During my walk, I saw something glorious. Purple, purple everywhere-crocus blossoms turning the dead field to a carpet of beauty. I snapped a few really bad photos with my phone and even stopped to pick a small bouquet to remind me that, if even only for a day, spring has sprung. I’m happy. 🙂
