Crocuses at my Front Door

Crocuses at my Front Door

The only flowers in my garden are the crocuses–yellows, whites and purples–but they are lasting a long time. Last year the rabbits gnawed them so there were only bits of stems at ground level. This year I’ve only seen a couple of rabbits, and the winter wasn’t even that harsh, though it was a long haul for sure.

Hoping I won’t have to engage in the rabbit wars and squirrel wars like I did last summer.

These crocuses seem to be melting into space, the result of using the Lens Baby on my Olympus. I’m just beginning to explore this lens with flowers–it was a Christmas gift–and I’m looking forward to lots of experimenting. So far, I’m liking the soft look, and the unexpected results. I never quite know how the photos are going to turn out!

  3. Lucky you… I’ve been waiting for mine to bloom the sign of spring, yet none with the cool temperature and much flooding. Very happy there is someone out there enjoying the Crocus.
