Such a joy that my neighbor’s crocuses are blooming! (Two points for anyone who can pluralize crocus in a different way, without looking it up in Google, no cheating!)
For some reason the orange ones have opened up before the purples.
A few of the crocuses have stripes!

I wish the crocuses were out up here, hopefully this nice weather we are having will spur them on.

So fresh, so lovely and sooo SPRING!!!
Lovely! I don’t have any crocuses in my garden, a condition which needs to be changed. They are such a lovely harbinger of spring.
Love the metallic sheen and droplets on the purple crocus! Our crocus season seems almost over again –
Great shots. I guess my favorite one is the stripy shot because it is unusual.
Wonderful macros! It’s so great to see these first springing forth and beginning to bloom. That purple is stunning!
Believe it or not I have a crocus BUD in my garden. (OK, I admit it’s in a very sheltered spot.)
A lovely selection of colorful crocus.
Crocuses, how beautiful! Finally they show their beautiful spring colours!
Crocii? Crocusii? 🙂
Anyway,love those first flowers that tell us Winter is almost over….
Baila, thanks for reading the challenge! I guess it’s OK if everyone else just wants to look at the pictures.
Let’s see if anyone else gives the pluralization challenge a whirl.
I am so excited that spring is around the corner. Lovely captures. Smiles B
It isn’t crocuses? Eww..that doesn’t look right at all. I don’t know….They are a beautiful sign of spring though…
Yes, it is ‘crocuses.’ But when I looked it up, I found another way to make ‘crocus’ plural. Curious if anyone can guess.
Love the purple ones. I’ve seen a lot of the yellow ones lately. =)
I did not know this flower.
Its is beautiful.
I was thinking perhaps croci? Though crocuses sounds correct. I suspect I would have to look it up before using the plural! Lovely photos, but I think I like the striped one best, don’t remember ever seeing one before…
Bingo! Kayleen, you get the prize. It’s both crocuses and croci. According to Merriam-Webster: http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/crocus
(actually, there’s a third plural listed there, too, which is: ‘crocus.’)
I suspect the croci comes from the fact it’s a latin word…or at least thats what I think I remember from a year of jr. high latin…My mother would have told me “see you really did learn something useful”. 🙂
No crocus for us yet but soon, the rains and the March winds are here
I always love Crocus but yours are amazing. Those colors are so deep and beautiful.
Thanks for commenting on my Today’s Flower post. Appreciate that. Do come again. See you …
I really love the colors.
Hey, I was close!
You get a bonus for actually reading the post.
I have to say I like the striped one as well – I had some of those years ago.
I’d love a field of croci! 🙂
I so smiled at your comment to Baila – I find a lot that it’s only about the photo. 😉
Can you imagine how these posts would look if they had no photos? None of us would bother.
Croci? Whatever the plural is, they’re lovely.
Perhaps crocuses, crocus or croci?
Beautiful macro shots of one of my favourite spring flowers!
Yes, all of those are correct!
My purple crocus (yes, the word crocus is not only singular, but plural) are blooming, also. Their heads popped out of the ground last week.
Leora: Beatiful captures of all the neat Crocus. Mine kepp opening then closing for days because of the weather.
Thanks for sharing these LOVELY crocus blossoms!
Hugs and blessings,
I love the water drops on them!
