buds to blooms


did you know that crocuses are defined as “a low herb related to the irises with brightly colored flowers borne singly in early spring.”?  I puzzled over the “low herb” part and then had to let it go.  I’m not much of a gardener…I do best with hardy flowering bushes…so my definition of herbs are the basil, thyme, rosemary, and parsley in pots on the deck.  Well, whatever the definition, my crocuses are beautiful and blooming!  Just two days ago they were mere buds.

I am so proud of the few flowers who doggedly bloom each year in my yard.  My inability to plant and grow them in large numbers has discouraged me from ever maintaining a garden.  My survivors are a huge source of inspiration to me: I painted this impressionistic oval using alcohol ink on polymer clay in their honor:

Until later.
