Flowering Friday - Dreaming of spring and blooming crocus

Crocus tommasinianus 
Every autumn I plant a couple dozen Crocuses in our lawn and along the front border of the garden. Can't wait to see these lovelies blooming again, and since it's almost March, fingers crossed, it won't be long before that happens! This photo is (obviously), from last year. I snapped it before some creature, (not sure which: deer or squirrel) ate it. All that was left were those slender variegated leaves. The garden is nature's salad bar to some. Such is life!

So, if you're looking for more dirt on these dainty spring bulbs, the Alpine House has a stockpile of reference information and photos of the lovely Crocus.

Happy Flowering Friday!  ~ K.S.
