Crocus Flowers – Sure Sign of Spring

Crocus and a Bee – My Precious, photo by mzrosie

Crocus flowers are a sure sign that spring has sprung.  Crocuses are definitely the first flowers to welcome spring.  At times, they push themselves out through snow as if saying to Mother Nature “Still winter?  What da?”

The lavender crocus picture above with a bee so engrossed in doing what he does best, I call “My Precious” as in a memorable quote from the 2002 film The Lord of the Rings.

This photo of striped single crocus below, I call “The Loner.”

This photo of two lavender crocus looks so romantic, so I called it “The Lovers.

The photo below of purple, yellow and white crocuses represent a group of friends, so I called them “The Group.”

The photo below of yellow crocuses, I called “Yellow Crocus,” for lack of imagination.

And the photo below, I called “Lavender Crocus.”  For obvious reasons.

And, the last photo below is a bunch of purple crocus with a bee digging deep.  So, what do you think should I call it?  Purple crocus with a bee?  Ok, cool!
