Lavender Crocuses

Finally, in spite of  almost-weekly snows, the crocuses have opened. They take in as much life-giving sunlight as they can manage, brightening corners of gardens and swaths of lawns with their humble, no-fuss blooms. Next  week they may have to endure one more fresh blanket of snow, but the crocuses will make it through; a promise that spring is inevitable.
