Thou hast few names even in Sardis which have not defiled their garments; and they shall walk with me in white: for they are worthy. Revelations 3:4
--------------------------------------

When the crocus on earth
Wearing garments of white,
Walk with angels of worth,
They are blessed by the light.

Poetry by me, AJP

Most of the Crocuses are done for now but the white are the very last to bloom...They were especially radiant this afternoon and I was awed by the light that illuminated from them.. I have never seen them as beautiful as they were today.

    The purple are elegant, the gold are striking, but the white has a simple beauty hard to describe!

    These white crocuses are absolutely stunning, Andrea! They look so pure and petite, but they also radiate the beauty of all God's creation. A very creative shot. Very well done!! I will miss you too at the meetup. I really wish you were going to be there!!!!
