03.22.2016 Think Spring

Despite yesterday’s brief winter reprise, I am eagerly anticipating the return of spring flowers.  Our peonies, daffs and croci are popping out of the softening earth and it won’t be long until the wildflowers, like this bouquet of marsh marigolds, take their place in the pageant  of the seasonal rebirth.

My muck boots earned their keep for this image although muck rhymes with suck which is exactly what this ditch did to the boots as I pulled myself out of the ooze.

P.S. I wasn’t sure if the plural of crocus was crocuses or croci so Googled it.  It is croci which has an alias…cash return on capital invested.  Think I like the flower better.

    Best of all, you’ve reminded me of Jim Croce. I haven’t listened to his music for some time, and I’d forgotten how much I like it. I like this photo, too. The colors are beautiful, and certainly spring-like. The flowers look a good bit like our buttercup. I see they’re both in the family Ranunculaceae, so I guess that explains the family resemblance.

    • I hadn’t thought of the connection to Jim Croce but now you’ve put “Time in a bottle”.

      They are related as you mention but I have never held one under someone’s chin. 🙂
