I was a bit of a recluse this winter in terms of getting out and taking photos because it was always so damn bitter cold. This was my third winter here in New York, and it seemed like it was definitely the coldest.
Despite the winter still having a hold on our newfound spring, little crocuses, irises, and tulips have been popping their heads up in the garden down the street from me. They are the little heralds of the coming sunshine.
Their presence means that the weather is going to get warmer, and that we can soon bask in the sun as they do. Their bright colors cheer you up on the last few chilly days, and remind you that there is a cycle to all that is.
There is magic in the first flowers of spring.
Enjoy these little flowers and look forward to seeing many more as the weather begins to warm up. These should hold you over for now…
Until then, just keep your head up, and your gloves on. Maybe your shoes too.
