Easter Crocuses

I guess it was just about a decade ago that I decided to plant a garden. I had gone five decades without getting around to it, but I suddenly felt the call. For whatever reason, I was only interested in perennials, including spring bulbs that came up every year. Crocuses were the first flowers to come up, and I was smitten. Every year since then, if possible, I try to take some crocus pictures. Even though I don't have a garden at present (I just haven't gotten around to it in this new place), I enjoy Thesha's crocuses every spring. This year, I decided to concentrate on macro shots, which are not that easy, but I'm happy enough with a few of them.

Happy Easter from me and the crocuses.

Happy Easter to you and your family. The squirrels eat my early spring bulbs so I have to go searching for my first flowers. Lovely Easter colours in your macro shots.

Those are lovely! Do you have a macro lens? I think that will be my next big camera-related purchase, 'cause I love taking macro shots, but can't get very good ones with the lens I have.
