Wild Crocus - Click Image for Better View
My backyard is basically a wooded area and where I spend quite a bit of time with my camera. This is where we always take our dog to "do his business". I always take him through there before we go on our walk so he doesn't leave a present on a neighbors sidewalk. Earlier this week, before I took Chance out for his walk, I was delighted to find this patch of wild crocus in bloom back in the woods. What a sign of hope it was! I am not a winter person and I long for the day when it's sunny and warm again. Today, I noticed that many more were beginning to bloom. Spring is not too far away!
