Just when it feels like winter will never renounce its chilly grip something magical starts to happen. Buds on branches, birds excitedly foraging for worms in the warming ground and tiny crocuses pushing up through the warm earth. When we catch sight of the first crocuses it finally feels like Spring is finally in the air. These tiny flowers, more delicate than most, drench patches of land with the most wonderful splashes of ochre, purple and white. We love their pigmented appearance that makes early March such a delight.
