My new blog name...

should be Crocus tommasinianus after my streak for the past couple of weeks.


   But I could not resist posting the photos I took last night.  I had just pulled in to the garage, home from my trip to the grocery store, and the gloomy, wet light was too perfect to pass up.

          ...like tiny purple brush strokes...


      I love them here with the red stems of  Cornus alba 'Elegantissima'.

    
     This view looks back to the little rock garden by the maple where soon Scilla siberica will continue the blue mood. Thanks for appreciating them with me one more time!

  4. Thanks Julie for visiting my site, i was able to see your wonderful crocus photos. When taken in wide angle they seem to be different from all of them in many blogs. I love its DOF too.

  10. I too love these early crocuses. Have your tried the cultivar 'Ruby Giant'? It has a deep saturated purple color and is just coming into bloom now as the species is finishing.
