Mama’s crocuses

I am in Auburn this week, and have noticed these modest little flowers blooming all over the place. In particular there are lots of yellow crocuses across the road from our place. They were planted by my grandparents, who lived there throughout our childhood. Helen, who lives there now, has a lovely garden, including trees and some flowers that have been there since back in the day. Mama really loved crocuses – they flowered in March, in time for their wedding anniversary on 1st. It is a sweet reminder of her to see them flowering again, nearly 40 years after she died. Memories are a bit like flowers perhaps – they bloom, sometimes ‘seasonally’, as we remember special people at particular times, no matter how long it’s been since they were here, alive, with us.

As mentioned, I’ve noticed other crocuses flowering in different gardens around town, and have taken pics of them, both the purple and yellow varieties.

Here they are…
