Colchicum, erroniously also called the Autumn Crocus,
is totally unrelated to the Crocus which flowers in spring,
has proved yet again that life exists where it is least
expected. All the shrubs in this garden bed have
succumbed to our persisting drought, and still in our dry
and sere garden, this joyful emissary of hope appears.
All three clumps are flowering their hardest, feeding
bees and tiny butterflies alike where there is hardly
any other food available.
Wishing you all a Happy Easter, Passover or
just a little break in your everyday life.
