Thanks for Autumn Crocuses

Gold, red, orange, brown are are the colours of autumn.  But magical hints of purple were in Margaret's yard -- a crocus was blooming! zonatus (C.kotschyanus) is dormant in summer and blooms in the fall.  Margaret showed me its entry in Lois Hole's Favourite Bulbs as we waited. 

The tightly twisted lilac petals slowly unfurled as it soaked up the sun revealing bright orange anthers. 

And then, what luck!  A bee dove straight into the flower.  It was a little too fast for me to capture on camera, but it certainly was a nice sight. 

May you all enjoy this beautiful day and have some lovely moments like this to share.  Happy Thanksgiving!
