Wish I’d planted autumn crocus

Autumn crocus (Crocus speciosus) blooming in November 2013

Especially after having written a Trellis Magazine article that mentions them among “the other bulbs” that are oft neglected in gardens, you’d think I’d have rushed right out and bought me a bundle of autumn crocuses (Crocus speciosus) and their cousins Colchicum speciosum. I could be enjoying them at home instead of in someone else’s garden*. Lesson: You can never plant too many bulbs!

*Actually, the Toronto Botanical Garden. Run right over now and see if they’re still there.
