They shall roar together like lions: they shall yell as lions' whelps.
Jeremiah 51: 38

Some Crocus yell - low
Appear quietly mellow
They don't set out to explore
As the mighty dandelions do;
For their numbers are few...
But together they roar
With the same color hue
To replenish earth's floor.

Poetry by me AJP

We only get very few of these tiny yellow Crocuses in the spring, that bloom around a stump in back of our house ...but I am so thrilled when the purple and the yellow Crocuses show their presence after a harsh winter. It is exhilarating to see that spring is finally here.

    Andrea, your art (images and poetry) evidently knows no limit. The "mighty dandelions . . ." Who knew? Very, very nice.

    Beautiful! I know you are elated that Winter is just about over! I think the yellow crocuses are even cheerier than the purple.

    I love the yellow ones, too. Ours haven't appeared yet (still snowing), so I'm always delighted to be able to view them on your site!!

    These are such a beautiful shade of yellow.. I wish it was they who 'set out to explore' rather than the 'mighty dandelion' What a delightful sight they are!!
