Crocus Flower - Its Spring! by 

The first Sunny day this year!
Yeaaah its March, its spring!
A lovely day to walk around and so happy to see the first Crocus in bloom.

Crocus flowers are among the first flowers of Spring, often emerging long before the danger of snow and freezing weather has passed. Once a bud is mature, the flower will open on warm sunny days. The growth of epidermal cells of the inner and outer tepal (or petals) surfaces of flowers like the crocus and tulip are differentilly responsive to temperature. When warm, cells on the inside surface grow faster than cells on the outside surface, which causes the tepals to spread outward and thus opens the flower. When cold, like at night, cells on the inner surface slow their growth and cells on the outer surface grow relatively faster causing the flower to close.

Hi , my name is Ien, I like art and I am creative on so many ways. I make paintings for more than 10 years, use my fantasy and paint realistic.

Walking in Forest and Nature Area, give me inspiration to Paint. I also like it to make photos about the little things I see in Nature.

I love Nature and go for long walks with my doggy Cathy. Making macro photos of flowers and Butterflies is my passion.
