I'm always delighted to see a crocus or daffodil bloom in spring. The area between the sidewalk and porch is terribly neglected and I had searched in vain to see any crocus foliage amongst the weeds. I was afraid it had been choked out. But the indomitable flower showed itself in grand fashion today. I was delighted.
Also delightful in a neglected environment is the sight of a cardinal drinking water from an overturned outdoor thermometer on the deck.
