"And Spring arose on the garden fair,
Like the Spirit of Love felt everywhere;
And each flower and herb on Earth's dark breast
Rose from the dreams of its wintry rest."
Percy Bysshe Shelley ~ The Sensitive Plant
I was delighted to find these beatiful purple crocuses growing in one of my pots in the back garden. I don't know how they got there, I certainly didn't plant them, but they are very welcome to stay. It is so wonderful to find these signs of Spring after a long, grey winter. It really lifts your spirits.
