Crocuses In the Lawn

The grass still looks dead but the crocuses are ready for spring. I don't know what variety they are, but after just a couple of mild days, lawns all over the neighborhood are dotted with them. Some are loners, others gather in friendly groups. Unlike the dandelions that will soon appear, they are welcomed by all, and seem almost magical in their sudden appearance. "It's a fairy lawn" my friend said. Yes, indeed.
