Crocus, Canton, NC - 2015

Crocuses are the sneaky flower. One day the yard is brown and bleak, seemingly still in the grip of winter. Then suddenly, Crocuses dot the yard, promising that spring is certainly on the way. We'll still have some cold nights, and maybe even a few chilly days (I've learned not to turn off the pilot light on the furnace until mid April), but Crocuses are the promise that warmer days are on the way.
