Poetry Sunday-Crocus








Petals unfurl,

with shouts of joy!

A youthful gladness-

finally enjoyed.

One of the first bulbs to bloom, early in my garden, are the snow crocus pictured here.  They shout spring with splashes of color all over the garden.   Wishing everyone a joyous Easter!

  1. The early spring bloomers so consistently bring such joy and gladness, Donna, year after year. And we never get tired of them!

  2. What a beautiful, breath-taking flower that is, Donna! It even appeared like a wonderful painting before my eyes. And your poem are just a perfect match for this time of the year. Happy Easter! 🙂 and Hello (again) after a rather long absence… 🙂

  3. The first signs of crocus foliage appeared in my garden this weekend. Hoping for spring-like flowers soon!

  4. Hello Donna, i love this poem. Seeing the first spring flower does make me want to shout for joy. YAY for spring! Happy Monday, enjoy your new week!

  5. It’s not spring until the Crocus push through the snow! One of my favorite flowers because in northern Indiana there were Crocus in our yard and when young I was always amazed when they came up first. Lovely write Donna.

  6. These are the loveliest photos Donna and wonderful words to go with them. Thank you for linking with Today’s Flowers. I greatly appreciate your support. Have a great week!

  7. I’m patiently waiting for more of my crocuses to appear, they had to retreat with the ice storm.

  8. Donna, Happy Spring! Hope you had a wonderful Easter. The crocuses are so pretty and joyful indeed. Thank you for your continued support on my new blog. 🙂
