For about one hour yesterday my tiny crocuses bloomed. They are again closed up tight and will hopefully make it through all the bad weather this weekend to make Monday another happy day.

Wrangling with a new computer, a week of mainly rain, homework for classes, finding myself a little less tolerant of technology.
But between the downpours, I had to admire my late blooming wet fuchsia this morning.
I have been spending time on natural history illustration, botanical illustration and the perpetual journal and dealing with tech. This has meant a lot less time on photography. My big question is would you prefer a mixed media blog with more posts or stick with occasional photo posts? Please let me know.

I never noticed before that things bloom in specific colors in my garden at one time. Most of the blues and whites have passed, pinks are going and now I have purple flowers.

A new tulip in my garden this year. I love the intense yellow center.

A lovely pink shade of flower on my new Jacob’s Ladder, brimming with pollen.

I didn’t know that forget me not flowers emerge from a spiral. Double good since I love spirals and blue flowers.

A few warm days and sunshine and there they were, my first crocuses to bloom. We are going back to cold again tomorrow, but the birds singing and crocuses blooming are happy making. I think I post a photo of the first crocus every year, but why not?

A burst of sunshine behind a new African Violet leaf while it’s very cold outside. I hear there may be spring like temperatures next week.
