Isn't it just incredible how these sweet little flowers are really so very sturdy? I remember years ago, when we first bought our house and I really "got into" gardening, I would just panic when the weather forecasted a spring snow. I would cover azaleas, just in case they were in bud, worry about the poor little wild geranium sproutings, weep over poor tulips which were surely breaking under the sheer COLDNESS of it all... now I just shrug and think, "if they can't make it through a normal spring snow, then they don't belong in MY yard!"
I'm so glad your crocuses did well!

Vicki, you described this all so beautifully. I felt like I was sharing it with you. Such lovely little paintings too. Love how you captured the look and feel of snow. Really nicely done. :o)

Always pleasant when a zephyr floats by!

I hope we have brave little souls standing under our snow mountains. Little vegetable heroes and heroines, thrusting up the hills.

I have seen people shoveling their yards, sick of the white stuff...

Bravo! Bravo! Very nice.

The Latin name reminded me of the old movie about the cat "The Three Lives of Thomasina".

Crocus tommasinianus is named for Muzio G. Spirito de Tommasini (1794-1879), botanist & mayor of the city of Triest, shown in the little portrait at the right.

can't really help any further .... I love the way these little ones follow the sun - such pretty faces.
