Those two pictures from a bunch of Crocus flower I captured a few weeks back already,when we went for a walk on the weekend,when the weather was nice.I was very surprised to see them that early.
Crocus flowers normally appearing in Spring here.This Winter is far too warm,that's the reason why spring flowers are already start blooming.

Thank you very much Jegor

Oooh Crocus and Iris are my favourite flowers (visually at least. My favourite for scent is jasmin). I saw I got an upvote from you and having such a similar steem name, you caught my attention.
Mine is @ursa because I love bears. Why is your name @urs?
