Pretty ordinary #005
Last weekend’s unseasonably warm weather seems to have confused many of the bulbs in our yard. Everywhere you look green shoots are poking out of the dirt, unsure of their next move now that a blast of arctic air has settled over North Carolina. There is one species that seems undaunted by the cold: these tiny crocuses (croci?) managed to open their blooms completely, offering an unexpected display of winter-time color.
