Macro Monday #68

Pretty mauve candle

A new crocus in the garden, Crocus tommasinianus, an early flowering species and the absolute classic, mini mauve candle. Planted in a shallow bowl this year along with Iris reticulata ‘Harmony’ and some miniature daffodils, but they will go into the grass after flowering where they should self-seed and spread. Loved by the bees apparently, though I have yet to see one of those this year.

  1. I saw lots of bees yesterday in patches of crocuses and hellebores. They seemed all to be interested in the same plants. The first mild weekend must have lured them out.
