February Crocuses

Last week, upon reaching the island, we drove down to Peter Cove North to take in the view before heading to our house . While walking back from the beach to our vehicle parked in the little cul-de-sac a bright patch of purple caught my eye, and I just had to check it out. I walked over to take a closer look at what turned out to be a big patch of purple crocuses. I put crocuses on my wish list as something to plant.

As we pulled up to our house my husband and I fell into the routine that has naturally evolved over time, he opens up the house, I survey the yard and garden, and the kids stay in the van until the house is open. As I checked out the flower beds I spotted  bright yellow flowers close to the ground. Yellow crocuses.

The crocuses were a huge, but welcome surprise. I can honestly say I don’t remember planting them. On occasion I do get all excited with the huge bags of spring bulbs  that shops carry, maybe crocuses were in one of these bulk packs and I hadn’t noticed.

The purple crocuses I had seen earlier were very pretty, but the yellow ones are so eye-catching and different. Purple or yellow, the crocuses are a sign of winter ending and spring being on its way, and that is a very good thing.
