    Thank you, dear Geraldine–

  10. Love the line “spring emerges in soft hues”…so beautiful! πŸ™‚

  11. Hi Texas, Sounds like a great plan!

    Hi Sue, Glad it brought warmth to your day Sue.

    Hi Selma, They are such beautiful yet simple flowers. Not showy like the rose but beautiful none the less. I love their soft mauve color.

    Hi Rob, Nice to see you again. Your new blog is wonderful, well done.

    Hi Beth, The earth gets ready for another spring, what magic! πŸ˜‰

    Hi Carole, I haven’t so far, lucky you!

    Hi David, The great thing about haiku, every word must count. Glad you liked this work.

    Hi Christine, I was happy with this haiku and loved the photo. What would I do without Flickr? I try to pick photos there that have not received a lot of interest or comments but are good all the same. This photo stood out when I did a search for: Prairie crocus.

    Hi Sandy, Thanks dear Sandy, much appreciated.

    Hi Ruinwen, One of the magical aspects of spring, such soft pastel colors to start off earth’s awakening. Love it!

    Thanks to all of you for your continued support, much appreciated, G

  12. Ah, I’m waiting for that time to come here. Been a long Winter.

  13. I wonder how long until we will see crocus here? Lovely spring flower and poem.

  14. You make me yearn for spring with your words. We have been covered in snow, power outages and snow filled satellite dishes. lol We are feeling great and enjoying the snow, thanks! XXOO

  15. Hi Tony, It has been a long winter here too but I’ve enjoyed the large piles of snow we had, if only for a short while. I love winter and except for the driving really enjoy cold, crisp days. Much preferred to too hot! NOT for me. 😦

    Hi Sandy, I love the Prairie Crocus, such a delicate flower, gorgeous pale mauve. Not showy as I’ve said before but beautiful in a special way. Always remind me of Easter’s past. πŸ™‚

    Hi Tammy, I am so glad to read that you are all well. Sorry to read about the power outages etc. So strange to imagine all this in CA. Thanks for your lovely comments tonight and always.

    Hope that the spring weather arrives in your different areas soon, Hugs, G

  16. oh, I wish the crocus were up here. I am longing for spring so much this year – really nice πŸ™‚
