Carpet of Crocuses

Carpet of Crocuses

Posted: 25.02.07 | Categories: [Halifax]  [Nature]  [Savile Park]  

I've been waiting for this time of year for ages now, and watching expectantly for the crocuses to start blooming. Near where I live, these 'wild' crocuses appear every year on the grassy areas by the side of the roads. They look so beautiful and I spent an hour or so today walking around taking lots of snaps of them. I think I've got about 8 or so I'm really happy with and would post them all if I knew it wouldn't bore the pants of everyone. The title I chose really does suit how they look. [Edit: I submitted this to the local newspaper, and they printed it. I was rather pleased.]
