Love to see crocus welcoming us to Spring. Did you know that crocus also bloom in the Fall? It always surprises me to see crocus blooming in my garden in September. (You plant Fall crocus bulbs 'in September' and they bloom the following September. They also multiply too.)
Electric Beauties - [someone else's caption] - Are these tulips? I welcome knowledgeable comments.
Saffron-Crocus Flower: Crocus sativus. The three longer and darker-orange thread-like structures constitute the styles and stigmas that each Crocus flower yields at saffron harvesting time, manually by hand. No wonder Saffron is the most expensive spice in the world. - Flickr - Photo Sharing!
