Harbinger of Spring #2

I was walking on campus today when I spotted these poking up through the underbrush....The little crocus is usually the first thing to bloom in Spring, and there they are... Yahoo! So in honour of this little harbinger of spring, here's my haiku to the crocus:

Oh lowly crocus
Disguised within your smallness
Are promises GRAND....

new life, new love, fresh beginnings, fresh fruit/vegetables, warmer winds, warmer spirits..... may the new growing season be productive for you, whether you're growing fruits or vegetables, or your knowledge, or your skills, or your body, or your health, or your heart, or your soul.... good luck, Godspeed, Cheers!

Very poetic Angelo...and now I learned something new.

I wasn't quite sure what crocus was. :) I keep hearing it, and who knows why I never got around to googling it.

Spring crocus...aren't they lovely? All you northern hemisphere-ites are getting all frisky over spring and we're heading for cooler weather (I won't say autumn because we don't really get that, it just goes from hot to cooler).

Enjoy your week.
