Crocuses


Hoorayyy.... my very own crocuses !!! Purple crocuses !!!!!



Aren't they beautiful ??

Ever since I saw the crocuses on the big roundabout (not far from DS's school) on the 5th of March, I have been anxiously looking around my house looking for any signs of them. It's not easy to locate, the leaves look just like grass. Finally, on March 11th, I found them on my doorstep (well.. practically anyway...).

Around 10 a.m. on 11th March - still tightly bloomed...

Look at the leaves... just like grass and it's only about 3/4 inches high.



On the 13th March

On the 14th, around 4 p.m.

That's the only crocuses that I have in the garden. Only a single group of them.... but their bright purple colour is surely a sight for sore eyes, truly beautiful... Subhanallah

Dear Bangchik,

Seronok meninjau-ninjau, sambil mencabut-cabut !!!

Now I am sure that I have pulled out some of the crocus, thinking that they were grass. Yes I was weeding at that very spot last month!! The weather was unusually sunny and warm that day !! Aahh my poor crocus ...

How exciting to see your crocus finally blooming. Tak pe next year just refer to your photos so tak tercabut crocus ingatkan rumput. I never grown them before but always admire my neighbour crocus and indicated that it is already end of winter here. Lovely purple colour:)
