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.
