More Springtime Crocuses

Today I want to share a few more Crocus pictures.
These flowers have such a short bloom time that I am glad I was able to get at least some pictures this year. Enjoy the delicate beauty of these Manitoba flowers.




This is not a Crocus but still a Manitoba beauty,in this Grandma's eyes.



Finally,a rock with some interesting patterns on it

The Prairie Crocus

Yes,I'm still catching up with pictures.All winter long it seemed there was little to take pictures of and now I get so many,that I fall behind in posting.
These pictures are from the middle of April.

The Prairie Crocus is not only a pretty little flower,but it is also the floral emblem of Manitoba.

This flower grows on pastureland,on short stems.They are often hard to see unless you are right near them.

Some plants produce a single flower while others have multiple blooms.

This one has just poked through the ground and will open up in a day or two.

While Steve and I were busy photographing these little flowers,Kai was exploring.She found this Crocus.It is almost pure white.I don't know if the color had faded or if this is a variant of the normal purple flower.

The pictures I have shared and others which will come on a later post,were all taken about a mile from my town.
