The Crocus Sea

 It's been another fine weekend weatherwise, by February's admittedly very low standards, and I took advantage by getting some serious walking done, to the tune of about 3 hours worth. 

Unfortunately I also did about three hours worth of eating, so it all gets cancelled out. Wish I could lose weight like I did during Lockdown 1. Working during Lockdown 3 has just made me want to eat. 

In the space of a week, the cemetery crocuses have just erupted, turning it in the vivid sea of purple and white once again. It really does look so beautiful. 

I'm not long back in after a 10.6km run tonight, which I'm pretty proud of myself for doing. Two 10km runs in the week, just. 

I hope we are all doing ok, and we get our vaccines soon.

  1. Oh to have such clearly defined signs of spring. They are beautiful.

  2. Beautiful sea of Crocus flowers. My daffodils have a long way to go before they flower.

  3. They are exquisite and at their very best in this kind of environment Si.

  4. What a lovely selection of Spring flowers! You're definitely ahead of us, but our crocuses suddenly bloomed over the weekend!

  5. So at some point someone planted all of those crocus bulbs all over the cemetery?! Or can the crocus just keep spreading on its own? Whatever way - the results are beautiful! Thanks for the peek of Spring!
