I love crocuses - I hate the Groundhog. Here's why. We've been having really cold, dreary, wet weather here in Tennessee for quite some time now. The other day, in a slight break in the cold weather, I went out for a walk and noticed, around my mailbox, the crocuses were blooming. How wonderful to see these signs of spring, these perfect little purple flowers amongst all the other brown, dead plants. It reminds me that no matter how bad winter gets, spring always follows and we just have to bide our time. As for the Groundhog, well, he saw his shadow on a cold, dreary overcast day?? Really, are you kidding me - 6 more weeks of winter?
