Giant Crocus Blooming

Slowly, but surely, the brown is turning up splashes of color in our labyrinth garden. We have plenty more of the tiny crocus blooming back between the labyrinth and goddess garden. But the real flash is in the upper garden, tucked in next to the Holly Bush. These are the lovely purple Giant Crocus with their bright saffron stamens. Simply stunning. I’ve also included a shot of our little Buddha, as well as the Goddess herself, adorned with flower buds in celebration of the spring equinox.

UFO sighted at the Eye

Jane was walking up to the store this morning and spotted an Unidentified Flower Object (UFO). The two inch flower had poked it’s face through the leaves of one of our Lilac bushes.

Unidentified Flower Object

But this little lady looked nothing like a lilac. First off, it was a pale yellow, and secondly, it was a single flower. The center puff of this bloom somewhat resembles a dandylion, and it is surrounded by daisy-like petals, which in turn rest on a fan of green spikes.

The leaves on the stem are long and pencil-thin, but hidden by the lilac leaves in this picture. We’re hoping someone out there might be able to identify just who this volunteer is.

It’s apparently an early bloomer, because by noon, it had closed up. Please comment if you have any idea just who this is.
