Hi Wim,
Good to see you here.  I'm not really a bulb nut, but I was very interested to spot the name 'Petrovac' in your glorious posting. We stayed in this beautiful coastal resort when it was still part of Yugoslavia.  I remember a lone steep descent into the village cloaked with interesting trees and shrubs.  This was so far back in time that I had barely discovered alpine plants and took more interest in the attractions of the beach and the bars than the possible joys to be found in the mountains.  How things change ... is the bar open yet?  :D

Hi Cliff,
it's nice to see all these familiar faces on this forum indeed.
I can imagine there was a time you were more interested in fauna  ;) along the beach...but I guess that hasn't disappeared completely, has it? I like that fauna too, by the way  ;)

Now back to the plants: I think I got 'Petrovac' from Tony G. two years ago. It was a very small bulb but it flowered from the first year although it doesn't seem to give offsets. I should try to get some seed of it.

Beautiful Crocuses, Michel and WimB. Seems you look after them well! Do you grow all your plants in pots?

Beautiful!!  :o

I particularly love the Crocus alatavicus and the delicate blue of the C. abantensis.  Not too long now before the autumn ones start up here.  ;D

Cheers.

Michael, I can barely wait for my own to appear! But the weather forecast says very cold weather next week so I have to be patience  :-\
Therefore it is a pleasure to look at your plants (even if I'm a bit jealous :-[ )

Great colour, Michael.  Reminds me a lot of 'Hubert Edelsten', but even more intense? 

Cheers.
