Captivating Crocus & Other Spring Delights
I love crocus tommasinianus, they are the true heralds of spring – in my garden anyway. In the warm sunshine they fling wide their petals and jostle for the attention of passing bees. Once they have finished flowering I will dig some up and continue my job of spreading them round the garden – they really are a flower you can’t have too many of. Another pleasure is the scent of the Daphne odora
growing next to the steps that lead to the front door. It’s a crisp citrusy fragrance that I would buy in a bottle were it available. And floating above it, the mimosa
is in full flower. It grew so prodigiously last year that I am cutting off whole branches and giving them away. Good timing for this weekend too as I’ve just discovered that it is the traditional Mother’s Day flower in Spain.
