Crocus speckled by raindrops
All day we tried to take our walk. We even went so far as to put on coats and boots. I walked until I saw the purple crocus in bloom before I gave up, my hair wet, and turned back to the house.
I can verify that nothing can stop spring now. If the sun shines for two hours, there will be one thousand golden daffodils. They are only green now, but their buds are the largest I've ever seen. If the sun refuses to shine, they might just go ahead and bloom green flowers.
On my short walk, I also saw that Sedum Autumn Joy broke through the cold, hard ground. It will be a long time before Autumn Joy blooms, but the name itself brings joy and hope .
Nothing can turn back spring now.
