Before you think that you have left the early Spring flowers behind, I must reassure you that you have most definitely not! I love crocuses in the different colours and took lots of photographs when they were in bloom. Although this might be the Sieber’s I can’t easily tell from this angle, but it was a different clump in any case. I don’t think it will bother you if it is the same variety any more than it does me. In any case it’s a lovely cheering colour combination set against last year’s vegetation so I hope it brings a smile and a ray of sunshine to your day. If you want more cheer, don’t forget to visit the gallery by tapping or clicking on the image on the post on my site and scroll through some of the past flowers I have shared. You can make them full screen there. With this one I send a hug to you all. A flower a Day #241

  1. Here in Canada, the crocus is a sign of spring but the version that Ellie is showing us is the ‘crocus vernus’. However, the crocus is a member of the iris family which comprises 90 species, some of which also appear in the autumn and winter. The spice saffron is obtained from one of the autumn versions, the ‘crocus sativus’. Doesn’t that make you view our little crocus with a different eye? Additionally, the crocus, in its various forms, is truly a global flower, setting down roots in just about anywhere around our globe, from sea level to alpine tundra. If there is a perfect little flower, this may be it – perfection in simplicity. I think I’m falling in love all over again. Thank you, Ellie, for this simple perfection.

    1. That is fascinating, what an amazing flower! As if the beauty is not enough, the saffron flower one is worth more than its weight in gold. Thanks and I’m so glad that you like the photo, Janet.

  2. Thanks Ellie they are a bright and cheery flower. One of the first ones to welcome Us in the spring. Such a variety of colours as well. Thanks so very much for sharing. Hugs to you and Steve hope you have a good day.
