I started taking pictures of crocuses a few days ago, but haven’t posted any yet, because I’ve been pretty sluggish due to a bad cold/flu. But I’ve decided that I have more energy now, and also that I’m going to post them in sequential groupings until I get caught up to “real time,” so their development is clear. These are the first photos I took, on March 1st. It was a dark and rainy day, so I didn’t get a lot where my hand was steady enough with the macro lens at the necessary shutter speed for my satisfaction. But I kind of like these.

They’ve been busily popping up everywhere…. and I’m finally getting round to posting some pictures of them.
