William's Blog...with a smile!


A tough little flower...

Yesterday we had our first flower bloom.   It is just a little guy barely 3 inches tall.

This morning it was 25 degrees and on inch of snow.

I was sure that it had frozen.

I went out at noon when the sun was out and smiling happily there he was along with a few friends.

Lovely! The first flowers of spring are always the strongest - they made it through the winter!

My favorite color (can you tell?). My first flowers this year were my Apple Blossoms and I just got my first roses of the season. Thanks for sharing, next to vacation, my garden is my favorite place to be.

I had Crocus blooming in my yard a couple weeks ago.  However, mine were the golden yellow ones.  I use to have purple ones too, but they seemed to have disappeared.

Amazing how those early spring flowers have adapted to handle a bit of cold and snow.
