My wild crocuses.

About Zakiah

I write poetry and some fiction, have a book that was published in 2012. . . Stray Thoughts/Winged Words. I have four grandchildren, ages 16 and half to almost 16 months. I love the ocean, and grew up along the Indian Ocean in South India. I am a retired physician. Don't know much else to say. Thanks for reading. That has been my profile for so many years. My daughter Saadia a great poet and story teller, has two sons; the oldest grandson is now 21 years old, doing architectural engineering at Missouri S&T in Rolla MO. His younger brother is almost 16 and taking driving lessons seriously and is in High School. The other two grandsons, children of my son Sayeed, are 9 and 5. I have recently published another book titled Gulistan, A home of Flowers. It has stories and memories of my childhood and of a distant land which I still consider as my HOME., even though I have lived here in the US for more than fifty years. Hope to see you on my blog.

    None of my bulbs have even thought of sprouting. Sparky on the other hand has kale and arugula getting new leaves! He didn’t pull it up after his last harvest and it didn’t die during the winter! He is thrilled to have more salad greens…

  2. Oh wow – your garden is always so beautiful.

      I was so surprised to see them Janet. I was returning from my walk on Monday, and i felt a patch of sunshine in the periphery of my vision, I walked over to the spot in the front yard and low and behold. We have been having temperatures in the 60s and 70s for almost ten days now, and so many little green things are popping up. If this continues, the tulips and daffodils will be along soon.

  4. Your wild crocuses are gorgeous! Crocuses bring me such joy! Seeing them burst through snow on cold dark days I thought of a friend who struggles with Seasonal Affective Disorder and I wrote this poem…
    Like a crocus
    She pushes up
    Through the snow
    To feel the sun
    On her face
    Survived another winter
    (((HUGS))) and thank you for sharing your flowery beauty with us! 🙂

    Pretty! I’ve never seen yellow ones. I always forget where mine are until they come up! Next, the daffodils.

      Hope you all are having as good a weather as we have been having these past week and half. I think it is going to change tomorrow. lot of rain for the next few days it seems.

        We just got a tiny bit of rain this morning. But the beautiful weather made me think it was Spring, but I think we got snow in March last year.

    • Zakiah says:

      Oh yeah, we tend to forget, but i had posted photos of the snow and ice in March on Facebook. It reminded me with photos. Not a little bit of snow either… it was a major dump!

      I got my purple ones right next to these gold ones the very next day. Just such amazing colors. I am sure the blue crocuses are beautiful also. Post a picture sometime Michel.
      Best to you.

    OMG. They are beautiful full of life.

      I know , right? Except now, there are drooping. E had such excellent weather in mid February and the flowers birds were confused. My daffodils (some of them) bloomed and the others are ready to n erupt in all the colors, but I am afraid that the cold snap we are having, will not be good for them.
