Nice stuff, Dave and Fermi;
the plant piercing the leaf is interesting- I see that kind of thing in the woods fairly often, and always wonder how it happens that the shoot pierces rather than just pushing the leaf aside!

Yes my thoughts as well Cohan --it's not as if the leaf was a heavy sodden weight...

Here's a first flowering from NARGS seed sown Feb 09 ---Crocus sieberi ssp atticus --a lovely yellow throat .

Cheers dave.
