I am pretty sure I post about these flowers every spring, but then they are our provincial emblem, they show up every spring and they are just plain pretty.
As you can see these flowers push up through the soil very early, before any other growth is around.
They have very short hairy stems, but a look inside one of these flowers reveals a special beauty.
Here those hairy stems really show up.
I was out with son Steve and granddaughter Kai. We are very careful not to pick any flowers or otherwise destroy them.They are a protected species. Kai thought those stems just felt so soft, so she gently felt them time and again.
I just take pictures, but Steve gets real serious about this. Notice that the camera is on a tripod and he has an umbrella like gadget that actually has a soft light in it.Watch for my next blog post to see how this is used. The resulting photos are wonderful. To see some of his work check Steve's Photos. Here you will see Crocuses and other nature scenes as well.
One last look at these small spring flowers. By this time of year, May, they have all finished blooming and we wait for next spring to do it all over again.
Something To Think About:
Flowers are heavens masterpiece.
