Mine are not the best of images as there was only a brief spell of sunshine as the sun was setting.
My hands may also have had a wee shake as a legacy of the night before.  ::)

Happy New Year everyone!

A mild spell has brought a few crocus into flower.  Hoping for a return to cold weather to hold the rest back.

Crocus punctatus and a white form of Crocus danfordiae.

Nice collection and pictures of Crocus everybody. There are so many interesting Crocus lacking in my own collection.

Tony, do you mean Fethiye in Turkey where your Crocus fleischeri is from?

This will be second night with minus 10 C, tomorrow I will start covering of all beds with 5 cm thick glass-wool sheets. Next weeks are promised only with minus temperatures. A lot of crocuses are with flowerbuds out, but as days are cloudy no flowers opened.
