Crocus Beauty in Bergen

This time last year there was nothing on the trees; no leaves, no buds, no pussy willows.  Earlier than we could have expected this year there are green shoots, leaves, buds and revitalised wildlife.  Thanks to the unprecedentedly mild winter we have had things this early in the year are amazingly different.  Three days ago I was able to capture some superb images of crocuses such as have rarely been seen this far north at such an early date.  Enjoy the flowers…

These wee crocuses are definitely making a lot of early spring noise.

    1. You glacier addicts do my nut in! In all seriousness though this time last year we were suffering a long cold spell, although we had almost three weeks unbroken sun. When that broke we had snow almost into May. Feel my joy, my friend – spring has sprung six weeks early. Happy is wee me! 😀 Thanks for commenting ;-D
