Crocuses Quotes

  • A single crocus blossom ought to be enough to convince our heart that springtime, no matter how predictable, is somehow a gift, gratuitous, gratis, a grace. …
  • The true harbinger of spring is not crocuses or swallows returning to Capistrano, but the sound of the bat on the ball.
