close up of two cheery yellow crocus on a small embankment near my apartment – in bellingham, wa, usa – in the afternoon sun. because of its location it got more sun and it sprang up a week earlier than any others givng great cheer and hope at the end of a long winter. kind of made me think how easter does the same every year

2nd place in the Flowering Bulbs (no insects or text) Showing either soil/dirt or snow challenge march 17, 2011
