The first signs of spring

In my garden, the crocuses are among the first signs that spring is approaching. Early in the winter I start to watch for the first crocuses to appear. Their leaves often sprout out of the ground long before the end of winter but the flower buds wait for longer days before they emerge. When I see them start to bloom I know that spring and the return of warmer days will soon follow. They only bloom for a short time and then they are gone again until next year. As with many things in life that are long-awaited, I am often a little sad to see the last of them fade away. But while they are here, these cheerful little flowers make me smile.
