Hope Looks Like a Crocus

Do singing frogs tempt the crocus to pop up overnight from the cold and dark? How do they know when I'm desperate for color's company.....

One day they weren't there, the next, their happy faces welcomed my morning with good cheer and hope for spring.

Those are absolutely gorgeous! I am germinating my sweet pea seeds and getting ready to pop them in the ground outside...we're getting nearer to spring by the day. Hooray!

I saw daffodils at Trader Joe's two weeks ago. Today we have six feet of snow on the ground. It's all just a wee bit perverse.

They are so pretty! We are still entirely buried under snow. Spring doesn't happen here till April. :)

Coming over from twitter to leave you a comment :-) These flowers are beautiful. Frogs sing the rain on down, so I wouldn't be surprised they could sing flowers up too.

Spring will come girls. Sarah, I forgot about frogs singing the rain down.
Em, I love sweat peas. My favorite flower. Maureen, hope you dig out soon.

Crocus are such a wonderful sign of imminent spring!

Crocus? Already? We still have a couple months to go yet here in PA!
The pictures will tide me over for a while, though!

Melisa, love the word imminent....

Camel, so sorry! But think of the rain we have to put up with all winter.
