CROCUS GUARDING!!!!!!!


Our crocus have burst forth as the days get warmer
and sun spends more time thawing the garden.
This is our favourite time of the year
revival
rewakening
renewal
rejoicing



I will sit on guard because I know my duty
after nine years of roaming my garden.
(I apologize for the occasional blurriness!)


From blurriness comes a work of art!
Perhaps the beginnings of
a new rug
a watercolour
an oil painting
or
whatever the imagination conjures!
You decide!!!

  2. And I thought this was the start of a new beginning with a quilt coming forth, from the digitalised photo. Beautiful bulbs, a true trumpet bugle of spring .

  4. Ooooo, I love the "artified" version! That would make a lovely art print to hang on a wall.

  6. Sophie, you are such a very good dog. And so very smart to not step in the flower beds.

    1. She's pulling the wool over your eyes Inger ~ every morning she makes a beeline for this bed to pee and sniff. I have to be so careful that I don't accidentally step on them too because they are spreading into the walkway.

      Snow is flying right now so hopefully these beauties survive the high winds!

      All the best!
      Ron

    1. We only had high winds/rain/spitty wet snow flakes ~~ we have been so fortunate this winter ~~ I don't want to jinx the miserable weather Gods ~ so I veer away from weather as I stare at some lovely sunshine smothering the garden.

      I'm in a creative mode, happens every spring!!
