Many thanks Luc.

Thatís a bonny crocus Tony!
As you suggested, there is little evidence of Scardicus in this plant.

They were clearly desperate for copy that month  :D

Thanks for sharing this.  Disappointingly, I have not seen a copy, let alone been sent one  :-\

I can only envy you all. We had snowing and snowing - already twice our entry road was cleaned from excessive snow and temperature is slowly dropping, tonight we had minus 7 C, for next even minus 13 offered, then something less but around minus 5-7 C. Of course nothing blooms. In greenhouse when it is sun - temperature rises up to + 10 C, but everything is covered and below cover at top of pots is +0.5-1.0 C, at pot bottom + 1.5-2 C. Some days ago I returned glass-wool sheets to protect against harder frosts. Hope that in March will be possible to open covering, because I announced OPEN DOOR days 16-17 th of March. Usually most of crocuses then are in flowers. Last year we had around 800 visitors and everyone will be welcome.
Servers of my home-page were attached and for 3 days it was impossible to open it, but this morning everything is repaired and again works.

Janis life seems difficult with those temperatures. Here we have only had -2c on three nights so far. It is too warm for the crocuses and other bulbs. If the sun comes out it gets to 20c in the greenhouse so difficult in a different way.

Very nice seedling. I'm always telling - against frost I can cover and protect my plants, but against high temperatures... helps nothing. :'(
