The other day I went for a walk in Bowmont. I hadn’t been in about a week, so I was pretty excited to be back.

We’ve had relatively nice weather for the last little bit, so I was secretly on the hunt for some crocuses. They’re always the first things to bloom every spring, and I needed something pretty to cheer me up. It’s been a really tough couple of weeks.

About fifteen minutes into my walk I found my first crocus. I was so excited! They’re a beautiful flower all on their own, but I think they’re even more beautiful because everything around them still looks dead. They’re the only colorful thing in all of Bowmont right now.

The plan is to go for another walk in Bowmont today, though in a different part where I know there’s usually lots of crocuses. Hopefully I’ll be able to find some more starting to bloom.

First Crocus of the Spring!
