first signs of spring

It took my sisters visiting me to point out that flowers were blooming in my front yard. (Yes, I've been a bit busy lately.) As northern travelers found themselves in daunting winter weather, these little yellow crocuses protected themselves by staying staunchly shut through the cold and gloom of yesterday.

What a wonderful surprise in the middle of February! The flowers' bright yellow and diligence in the cold have given me a bit of happy energy to move forward through the next month or so.

And I will be sure to post a shot of them open--when the sun comes out.
