And all the woods are alive with the murmur and sound of Spring,
And the rose-bud breaks into pink on the climbing briar,
And the crocus-bed is a quivering moon of fire
Girdled round with the belt of an amethyst ring.
~ from:  Magdalen Walks by Oscar Wilde


A delightful and unexpected addition to my garden this month.

  1. Such a deep purple. How nice to have these pop up unexpectedly in your garden. We visited a Tudor house near Manchester last September and came across a beautiful drift of crocus flowers growing under a huge oak tree. They were a much paler purple than these, but so pretty.

      1. That’s interesting. There were dozens of them and they made such a pretty display. It helped that we were sitting under an oak tree, in front of a Tudor mansion overlooking a stunning vista of hills and a lake with swans on it. So English!
