Crocus abantensis ----Wasn't too sure whether i'd see any blooms this year after giving away a good sized bulb last year -- luckily the two left in the pot are both flowering.

Cheers Dave.

Dave, your Crocuses give me a feeling of spring - as did the trip to Finse where the snow still lingers  ;D

Very nice Fermi --i missed that offering somehow  ;) ;D

Incorrectly raised from seed as C.kosaninii , i'm sure this is C.imperati --a largish bloom with wonderful feathering.

Cheers Dave.

Not sure of the sps --they may well be seedlings that have appeared in a mossy trough.
In any case i thought the scene taken today ,where one of the stems has pierced the fallen leaf, was worth sharing.

Cheers Dave.

Your crocuses reminds me of the autumn-blooming ones, but no sign of them here yet. Nice to see yours though ;)
