• Many Happy Returns

    Crocus tommasinianus does it to me every year, one week there’s just a tuft or two of leaves, the next week there are clusters of fully-formed flowers. I think my neighbours must consider it the first sign of spring when they hear my ‘Ooh look, the crocus are out!’ as I walk round the corner of the house.
