First Day of Spring

 First day of spring this year came with more snow! It melted where we are but the snow stuck just a few feet farther up the mountains.

 

 An icy wind is blowing outside right now, but this afternoon we had a few minutes of sunshine. I took a few pics to share with you. Here is a rock iris: a tiny little jewel that braves the cold to bloom in early spring.

Beautiful purple snow crocus opening up to enjoy the sunshine.

And here are some giant crocus.

And finally, some beautiful tiny cream colored snow crocus.

Really, really, hoping that icy wind will stop blowing so I can get out and enjoy my garden for more than a few minutes!
