diamond in the rough

The light stayed hidden yesterday, shielded behind gray, pregnant clouds. Looking around for something to photograph, I inspected the crocuses, to see if any were blooming yet. Nope. But I DID find this perfect drop nestled in a little wedge. We got the rains this morning. When it is quiet, you can hear gurgling sounds coming from the roof.

[Update: I was informed by our friend at the Rook's Nest, that this flower is a daffodil, not a crocus. Thanks, Shammy!]

My wife gets all excited when the crocuses bloom, which they have here in Mary-Land.

Gurgling sounds from the roof? What?

Craver: They do spring to life very soon.

Init great when you find something like this to photograph.

Sure, Sandman. The pitter-patter mixed with a rapid flow of water produced a low, gutteral gurgling. Sort of. Heh heh.

The crocuses are very welcome after a snowy winter, Fishing Guy. It means it's time to tune up the lawn mower. Vroom, vroom!

Well Imac. "New" camera in hand, I felt like I just HAD to find something. Oh, you missed it... I now have a Pentax DSLR!!

I'm pretty certain that those are daffodils emerging from their winter sleep, not crocus. Crocus flowers spring up before their leaves.

I am SO looking forward to warmer days, Mommanator.

You know what, Shammy? I think you're right. Thanks for the correction. I assumed, since I was looking at a place that I thought I saw the crocus before.
