First Crocus

In the north, April is a month of abundant "firsts", and among the most exquisite are the first crocus blooming in the garden. In their whites and golds and imperial purples, they are harbingers of the riotous blooming to come.

I also always look for the first crocus here in Wisconsin. It's such a welcomed sight after a long dreary WInter. Your blog is beautiful - I'll be back!
