Autumn lilac crocus

Crocus speciosus day 2
Originally uploaded by Dirt Gently
I'm so excited! After spotting the furled-up flower emerging yesterday, the first of (hopefully) six Crocus speciosus bulbs went into full bloom today. One of the baby bulbs attached to this one is also showing signs of being ready to open up.

The sky was clear and the light was perfect this afternoon, so I spent an inordinate amount of time snapping pictures of this little guy. The full set's over at Flickr.
