It just needs a little sun

Yesterday the sun shone a little - it didn't really give out much in the way of warmth but it was just enough to trigger one or two reluctant flowers to open and show their faces.

The flower at the back looks as though it has had a a bit of a tough time but despite that I was happy to see it.

It wasn't just the crocuses (crocii?) that were happy to see the sunshine. Martyn has posted a photo of another welcome bloom on his blog post here.

  2. I'm working in Jersey this week. No sunshine here. Grey, drizzly and very cold. Don't think I've seen any flowers.

    1. I thought Jersey was an English Riviera, Mark and grew lots of early flowers - my image is shattered.

  6. I always feel such a sense of relief when my crocuses bloom. It's as if Mother Nature finally says, see, there is hope for Spring soon. :) Cheers, Jenni

  8. The sun is working wonders now, even though it's still very cold. Long may it last and a bit of warmth wouldn't be so bad either! My blue crocuses (yes, I say crocuses in plural, apparently you can choose...) are much later than my white, yellow and purple, it's like a second flush when the rest is almost done :-)

  9. Not a flower in sight in my garden yet, especially not one so colourful :( Makes it all the nicer to see what's going on in other gardens.
    Thank you for the reminder that spring really is just around the corner - finally!
