Round about this time every year, photos of little violet blossoms start to show up in this space. I worried that I might be repeating myself, but how can posting spring flowers not be a good thing?
This is within minutes of their first opening this year. Last weekend I shoveled off last fall’s dead leaves; the week was wet and not too cold and the little shoots were taller every day, and by Friday purple-topped. Today was partly sunny and as the shadows retreated across the lawn I went and got the camera.
To be honest, I couldn’t think of a new approach, and ended up shooting the same flowers at the same angle against the same backdrop, just like last year; and I can’t expect the camera to add creativity. But that’s OK, because the crocuses never repeat themselves.
