Poor blossom – caught in the snowstorm we had today.
Fortunately crocuses are hardy flowers that can handle the moody weather of spring. According to Wikipedia:
“Crocus flowers and leaves are protected from frost by a waxy cuticle; in areas where snow and frost occasionally occur in the early spring it is not uncommon to see early-flowering crocus blooming through a light late snowfall.”
Winter is on my head, but eternal spring is in my heart. ~ Victor Hugo
