Well, not yet, but soon. The little crocus is one of the first brave little flowers to poke their heads above ground after the snow has started to melt. This little flower is a relative of those gorgeous irises, and it can come in a number of pretty colors. It is usually associated with Easter since it makes itself known about that time of the year.
The crocus is a bulb flower, and even though they harvest them in the Netherlands, it is not native to that country. They may have first appeared on the island of Crete.
They can be found hiding under the snow in most of the Northern Hemisphere.
Here is a counted cross stitch pattern showing off the deep purple blooms of the spring crocus.
