  • Are these Crocuses??

    I always thought of crocuses as spring flowers.



    Well yes I know their Crocuses but why at this time of year.

    I'm sure someone will know.

    Thanks
    All the best

      Oops, I have commented on Andy's image and said they were spring flowers. Now must go and check the Wikepedia.

        Andy they are the Autumn crocus nudifolium I think is the botanical name. they have a long history, thought to have been brought back to England by the Knight Templars and used in there hospitals. There is usually somewhere near a reference to St John's.

          Ooh Andy - what lovely colours in those flowers, you really should try to get back there and grab a few shots when they are open. I envisage some stunning Autumnal images from there.

                They're beautiful.

                You will have to go back, if only to see what they look like against different backgrounds. Would they be worse framed against the evergreen or better?
