From Old House Gardens, a chipmunk proof species of crocus (Tommies).
The Tommies, hiding from the cold.
Tommies again, sprawled open in the sun.
Tommies, so lovely when they’re open.
Another crocus from the hardware store.
Here they are, showing off all that sexy pollen.
Closed in the early morning, deep purple and limned in silver, we have the very un-PC heirloom species, Negro Boy.
Negro Boy again. I’m actually glad Old House Gardens choose not to white-wash the past, and stuck with the original name.
- From another angle, and still just as lovely, I give you more Negro Boy.
I think this is a Negro boy, sitting right next to a fat white crocus from the hardware store. They make a pretty couple.
No idea what kind of mutant crocus this is.
