I just realized that just because in every previous year I’ve run an excited photo of the spring’s first crocuses, that’s not a reason not to run an excited photo of this spring’s first crocus.

First crocus of 2009

Not my best crocus photo ever. But that’s not the point.

I sit beside the fire and think

of how the world will be

when winter comes without a spring

that I shall ever see

For still there are so many things

that I have never seen:

in every wood in every spring,

there is a different green.

I make excited notes in my running log when I hear the first red-wing blackbirds..

They've been arriving earlier and earlier - how does the crocus timing compare with previous years ?

Usually my crocuses show up a couple of weeks after yours, despite which they surprise me every time ;-)
