Crocus Flowers Hand Embroidery Pattern

I decided to jump to early spring for this design
and embroider a row of crocus flowers on a kitchen towel.
I liked the yellow and green stripes on the towel
and went with a yellow theme.  It's titled Hello Spring

Did you know some people like to give crocus
flowers on Valentine's Day rather than roses?
There is a legend of St. Valentine, a physician, who was imprisoned
and sentenced to death in Rome.  One of his
patients was the jailer's blind daughter.  On the day of
his execution he gave the jailer a note with a saffron
crocus flower in it to give to his daughter.
Upon opening the note she saw a flower for the
first time, her eyesight was restored.
This occurred on February 14.
