TODAY'S FLOWERS ~ Easter Surprise

Happy Easter everyone!

As you know it has been dry here for a long time now yet
everyone hopes for the Easter Bunny's bounty.

Better than chocolate eggs or bunnies, I had this wonderful
present of Colchicums or autumn crocus smiling at me from
a dry unweeded flower bed.


Certainly not as many or as tall as in good years but nevertheless
a wonder of creation, lending a touch of colour to the surrounding
dry grass.

For an even brighter surprise, a glorious flower on my struggling
elephant's tongue.



So many blessings!
Thanks to the TODAY'S FLOWER Team for the opportunity
to share our flowers.

  9. Wunderschön!
    Dass die auf dem trockenen Gras überhaupt wachsen können. Umso überraschender ist ihre Erscheinung.
