Crossquarter Crocuses


Today is a crossquarter day…

…midway between the winter solstice and the vernal equinox.

We are halfway from darkest winter to spring.

On this day…

in my backyard…

Crocus tommassianus reaches for the sun.

I don’t really encourage cats in the backyard habitat…but where I live they are inevitable.
