A month or so ago a bunch of purple flowers just started growing all over the place in my yard. Maybe it was more than a month ago, because I know they got snowed on a couple times. Or maybe it has snowed more recently than it seems in my memory. Not that big snow we had around christmas though, it was definitely after that. They made it through the snow, but they are gone now, I don’t know why. But it was nice having a bunch of purple flowers just pop up out of the ground around your house for the hell of it.
I think they are crocuses because one day when I was walking down the steps from my porch I there were two pedestrians on the sidewalk and they were noticing the flowers and I heard one of them say crocuses.
As a gesture of appreciation for this winter gift from my yard, I have decided to never mow any plant that grows there.
