Crocus heaven



The crocus (crocuses? croci?) have been up for a while, but somehow I just noticed how much variety there is. There are yellow crocus, orange crocus, white crocus, purple crocus, lavender crocus and even striped crocus. I feel silly for not having appreciated the bounty of crocus in the garden before now - it's like the whole crocus world has been singing "Hallelujah" at the top of their collective lungs and I only just noticed.

Wow- those are really lovely. I think it's the whitish-purpley ones- you should be pulling stamens for your own home-grown saffron!

They are lovely, and I'm envious that you are already enjoying spring blooms!! I noticed yesterday that my daffodils are just popping up--I can't wait; its been such a long cold winter for me!

They are lovely! I especially like the striped one.
I'm still patiently waiting for snow to melt to see if any bulbs have started to pop, but, the tree buds are starting to swell. Yea!
