Purple Crocus (Croci?) popping up here. If I had the smarts I would harvest the saffron, but then I probably have the wrong variety. http://photoblog.msnbc.msn.com/_news/2010/11/09/5434845-saffron-replacing-heroin
OK, not pictures of the first blooms of Spring, as we have blooms all year round, but here's a link to some photos I took recently when I rode my Vespa up to the top of our highest mountainhttps://picasaweb.google.com/aviator6715/MountAgiosPantesViews?authkey=Gv1sRgCMG0truUmv26bA#March is the greenest month of the year, as the winter rains put everything in bloom. August is brown time. As y delightful neighbor put it, "God makes the winter green for the residents and August brown for the tourists."
Lovely and inspirational. Thanks for the photo challenge. Everything is blooming like mad now, and all is covered with a silty yellowish mix. I saw a tree yesterday which was already raining down its white blossoms like snow, covering the street with its once-pretty array. I wish I had caught the flower storm.
It doesn't have to be flowers, Lisa. Never been in a "flower storm", though.Thanx for the pix mike and 47!bb
