Today the wind was so strong that the snow blew uphill. Is it too late to complain to the authorities that I was promised that it never snowed in North Devon and rarely was there any frost?
This is Crocus tommasinianus “Ruby Giant”; not much “ruby” about this “giant” but who cares when it shines opalescent in the spring sunshine? This crocus is sometimes known as the snow crocus as it is one of the first to come into flower. After today’s weather it will be feeling quite at home.
