Symbol of Spring
A crocus carpet
Saved by Wikipedia again! On Wednesday, as I walked back from meeting a friend in town, the sky was blue and our local council had excelled themselves with the swathes of crocus woven into the grass edges.
I climbed the path through the Old Cemetery, as I often do, for the view across town. There too the crocus greeted me on every side. I had that soaring, wonderful Spring in the air feeling, but of course, no camera!
I resolved to return to capture the moment later in the week, but you know what week’s are and I didn’t make it. Had to make do with one rather feeble shot taken wearily at the end of our road on Thursday, after an 8 and a half mile walk. (through glorious woodland but not a crocus in sight)
Thought I might manage today, after zumba, but the skies are grey and not at all promising. After a beautiful sunny week I can’t complain.
So what’s a girl to do? Credit my good friend Wikipedia and Gideon Pisanty, Kenpei, Meneerke Bloem and Bernd Haynold respectively. Thanks a lot guys.
Do you have a favourite? Mine’s the exotic “blue” from Japan by Kenpei. Don’t think our council planted any of that!
