George Butcher took this photo last Tuesday on Ridgewood Road, Fairmont. “This crocus has bloomed in January for the past 10 years,” he said. “I call it the ‘lone ranger.’” He expected it to gone soon because of the number of deer in the area. The photo was taken with a Samsung smartphone. Photo of the Week submissions may be made by emailing them to Cliff Nichols, news editor, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
