A Second Look--March 7, 2012

This week during a Second Look, I saw crocus springing up here and there. We don't have a definite crocus bed or spot--just wherever the squirrels and chipmunks have carried them and wherever there was a bed sometime in the past. This made each new discovery unexpected and exciting.

Most days have been cloudy or rainy, so all of the pictures show the crocus closed. They open when it is sunny.

Here's what I saw this week.

These white crocuses sprung up among the oak leaves near the front door.

These bright yellow ones are in the bed with the bird feeder. Notice the top of their leaves have been eaten.

These lavender ones with dark purple stripes are coming up in the middle of a cone flower plant.

These pale yellow yellow ones are coming up in grass in the middle of the yard.

These white crocus with pale purple stripes were in the middle of some day lilies that haven't come up yet.

This purple crocus is next to some azaleas.

Our first daffodil has also bloomed.


  1. These are beautiful. Definitely an unexpected surprise.

    1. Thanks for stopping by. I do this feature every Wednesday and I'm happy to finally have some color to add to my pictures as Spring is arriving.
