Regular readers have been putting up with quite a bit of whining about the endless weeks of solid rain. Well, that seems to have blown itself out with a bang, and the sun rose this Sunday morning. It turns out that all that rainy weather was also kind of warm, and the first flowers were more than ready to show their faces.

The crocuses lurk slim and closed until the sun hits them; the first of these three shots was within ten minutes of the sun reaching this clump, the second and third at intervals of half an hour or so.
