Things are stirring in the dark, just beneath out feet. They are planning for their journey toward the sun. And no wonder, as winter has been strangely mild with 70 degree days bookended by freezes. A topsy turvy season to be sure. These crocuses are winter bulbs, though, and it is their time to bloom. They are such treats while the rest of the natural world is still grey and slumbering. Looking forward to all the gifts that spring brings.
