So this post I am sharing spring as it is showing up in my back yard. I have many wildflowers showing up and some I'm not certain about.
The above are Snowdrop flowers. They are perennial plants and begin to flower after being under snow for sometime. The flower faces stay facing downward and are a bright white color with green centers.
A few patches of purple Crocus have also shown up! Crocus are part of the Iris family of flowers. They are the signal that spring is coming and bring a parade of colorful flowers. You might see them show up in yellows, white, purples or pink colors. The spice saffron is derived from a type of crocus that blooms in the autumn.
I hope spring finds you well and you are eager for green grass, flowers in bloom and chirping birds!
