These are the tiniest, most delicate crocus flowers you can imagine. They are first to show themselves in our garden, long before the magnolia buds on the branches above them show any serious swelling, and at almost the same time as the little snowdrops I shared a few days ago. I am so glad that I photographed them when I did, as since then the weather has been inclement, cold and rainy/snowy and these have closed up tightly. They are Siebers Crocus, as I found out in my research (we hadn’t paid attention to the names when we planted them). I don’t think more than one appeared in their first Spring and now, 3 years later, there was a lovely display. I imagine that it will get better every year, if only the weather will cooperate. With this colourful happy grouping, I send you all a warm hug, whatever your weather brings you.
