Symbols of Spring

Two symbols of spring ...the crocus and the bee...a beautiful sight to see.

Belgium's national flower, the red poppy, is a species of flowering plant in the poppy family, Papaveraceae. This poppy, a native of Europe is notable as an agricultural weed (hence the "corn" and "field") and as a symbol of fallen soldiers. In the northern hemisphere it generally flowers in late spring.
