Thank you for the information and wonderful illustrations Tony.

Nothing so spectacular as those you show here, but a few from the garden today.

'Blue Pearl', 'Cream Beauty', 'Tricolor' and 'Prince Claus'.

Spring crocuses are always welcome - they don't have to be rare or special to be of interest!
