With temperatures at 28C, we were sweltering in mid-July heat on the first weekend in April! My lawn popped it's annual frenzy of crocus colour.
Richard and I knew the crocuses weren't going to last long in this heat...
...so we took as many photos of these little beauties as we could.
Aren't they just gorgeous?
You seem to notice their colours more because they just jump out against the drab grass -- that is one rain shower away from turning green.
And we seem to appreciate them more, these first flowers of the year.
Harbingers of things to come.
