But I was glad to see the first saffron crocus in flower. I'd noticed their foliage a couple of days ago, and made a mental note to watch. The fun of having a blog is I can search and realize that I posted in previous years, too, about them.
I snagged the stigmas (the 'saffron') of this flower to dry. There will be more to come. These are plants were established quite a few years ago.
Here's a photo from 2008, from a post on Oct. 26 of that year.
