Today's treasure is of a very different sort than previous posts.
The treasure here is the return each spring of blossoms appearing from bulbs planted in years past.
These crocus appeared in bloom in the Perennial Garden outside my bedroom window.
I was totally surprised because there had been no hint of green or buds before Monday. Then in the warmth of the day they appeared.
The pond too brought out a surprise on Monday. Above it barely looks like its out of winter let alone time for spring. But the creatures knew otherwise and the chorus started on Monday afternoon for a very short while.
I spotted the lone singer.
Treasures of a different sort, yet valued each spring.
Linking to Tuesday Treasures.
