A Splash of Fall Color

SaphronFlower

I spotted this autumn blooming crocus by the steps when I delivered eggs and salad greens to Tweets Café today. It’s too early for the leaves to be changing color, but not too early for the first blooms of autumn.

Saffron is an autumn blooming crocus, but I don’t think the crocus above is a saffron. It takes 50,000–75,000 saffron flowers to glean one pound of saffron.
