Crocus – London, March 2010

There comes a point in every winter when you think you can’t take it any more – the waking up in the dark, the frozen toes in bed at night, the kitchen like a steamy sauna every time you boil rice, the bare branches silhouetted against a relentlessly grey sky.  But then one morning you step outside to find that the frozen earth has miraculously sprouted purple crocus flowers, and you know that the end is in sight.  And that makes everything better.

This is part of a series of non-food photographs that will be published every Saturday on CookSister. All photographs previously featured may be viewed on my Saturday Snapshot archive pages. Many photos featured in Saturday Snapshots are available to buy as high-quality greeting cards or prints in my RedBubble store. They make gifts, for friends or for yourself!

I love these crocus and this one is my favourite colour(habing only a blue and white garden!) I know what you mean…by the end of winter I just start needing some warmth in my bones..I have already started wearing lighter summer clothes…can’t handle a winter jumper or turtle neck any more!!
Lovely photo!

Beautiful shot of a crocus! I used to love to pick them in the mountains in Lebanon where they grow wild everywhere.

The Crocus family is actually the saffron family. I just grew saffron and the flower looks almost identical. The only difference is you get 3 saffron threads per flower..:)
