Things I Love Thursdays

Oh how I LOVE when people let me in on fabulous things, such as a flax field in bloom... or the first crocuses of Spring!  I headed out to a cow pasture on a hill near my friend Patti's farm.  YES - I brought my camera.  I love the lichen!


Patti contacted me for this reason - the crocuses are out! : ) I love this next shot sooo much.  )


I love how blue the sky & water was, and how yellow the land...


I love how you have to look for crocuses... sometimes the best of them like to hide.


I love this last shot of the crocus in the sage... it's like a cup of sunshine  : )


What a beautiful afternoon!  Thanks Patti.  Happy Thursday everyone.

It was so much fun to look for crocuses with you! I even got some sun on my face which is a start to getting rid of my Cdn winter palor, lol! It was a wonderful afternoon!

I had no idea the crocuses grew in the wild like that! Pretty. I'm planning to go out today for some pictures too.

Patrica said...

Thanks for sharing such a beautiful day.

Ellie said...

Yes I agree these are very pretty pictures.

All of that on a cloudy icky day. I'm so looking forward to the warmth of Sat/Sun (whenever it arrives) so that the whole pasture will be full of them. Right now only the brave are out. I love how you get down and see! I try that as well but somehow you get so much color in your picture.

Monika, I can't show your blog and beautiful photos to my husband or he'll have us packed and moving to SK before I know it! Thanks for sharing!

Monika, thank you for posting these crocus photos. Takes me back. My mom and I used to go out looking for them. Did you know, they only grow on the natural prairie, that once it is cultivated, they do not grow any more.

Wow! I had no idea that there are wild crocus's. Thanks for teaching me that!!
