Spring Time Crocuses
Photograph - Photograph-collage
The crocuses in our region of the Catskill Mountains of New York State just started showing their beauty. When it seems like winter will never lose its icy grip, the dainty goblet-shaped crocus pushes through the snow to put on a show of colorful revival. After doing my afternoon chores around our farm, I discovered the crocuses were up and, of course, I had my Nikon camera and I took a few photographs to create this crocus collage.
Here is some back ground information on crocuses: Crocus (plural: crocuses, croci) is a genus of flowering plants in the iris family comprising 90 species of perennials growing from corms. Many are cultivated for their flowers appearing in autumn, winter, or spring. Crocuses are native to woodland, scrub and meadows from sea level to alpine tundra in central and southern Europe, North Africa and the Middle East, on the islands of the Aegean, and across Central Asia to western China.
