Crocus vernus

White crocuses

The snow is not entirely gone–just mostly gone–when our first flowers, the crocuses bloom.  You might think that after months living in a grayscale landscape, I would be drawn to the brightly colored varieties, but I find myself loving the white crocus.

Only its stamens

are gold, but the white crocus

is sunlight in bloom
