jj's in jars

Title: jj's in jars

Sniff the sweet little flowers and be assured that they are soon to jump up from under the snow!
To all my kind viewers, Happy Valentine's Day with wishes for your happy heart.

Why are they in jars? The jars emerge after a spring rain, from the soil down near the swamp at the back of my yard. Perfume, nail polish, god-knows-what. The johnny jump ups I find in December, rolled up in to themselves, well after the first or second frost, under perhaps a brown maple leaf or two.
I bring them in, put them in jars, and they unfurl to reveal their sweetly scented, multi-colored faces.
Be sure not to leave nose marks on your computer screen :).
