Crocus 4

This will probably be the last photo I post of the crocuses, unless we get a little more sun and I can get some shots of the yellow ones. It's raining again today so all the crocuses, yellow and purple alike, are closed up.

Crocus 3

I've been wanting to get out and capture some more photos of the crocuses these last few days. There are more of them, including the yellow ones, out in bloom.  However, on the sunny days last week (when these little spring flowers are opened) I was working or away from the house. Yesterday and today it has been cloudy (today is rainy, and it's supposed to rain again tomorrow and possibly the next day, and we had a little snow on Saturday) so the crocuses are closed. Hopefully we'll get more sun before these flowers die, and I'll be able to get some more photos.  I can't wait until the other flowers are planted, grown, and in bloom!

Crocus 2

Another shot of the crocuses I took the other day. There are now some yellow ones out in bloom and I hope to get a shot of them over the next couple of days. This shot was edited a little using PSE 7.

Crocus In Bloom

These crocuses (and several others) started popping up back in February (minus the flowers). We ended up getting a couple of snow storms and they were covered up once again. In the last couple of weeks, the temperature has warmed up enough to melt the snow off these particular flower beds, and these spring flowers have popped up even more. Several of them are in bloom now, and there should be lots more coming up soon.  We have both yellow ones and two shades of purple ones. None of the yellow ones have come up yet, but they should come soon.

I took this photo this morning using RAW and played a little with it in Photoshop Elements.  I have several more shots that I hope to touch up and share in the near future.
