Wonderful crocuses - the purple tube with the yellow petals of C. scardicus is very nice.

This was out a week or two ago, but I've only just got my laptop back to post - one of Tony Willis's C. pelistericus - very nice, thanks Tony!

Two of last Crocuses in pots. They normally are not so late - both were aquired only last autumn from P.Ch. and as many newcommers in first year with me is not in best shape. They becomes normal in following season.
Crocus antalyensis alba

Pure white Crocus x gotoburgensis F-2 generation seedling. Almost incredible that grandparents are deep yellow and deep purple.

I was delighted to find yesterday, when planting out my Cr. olivieri ssp balansae 'Chocolate Soldier' (poor little thing with a name like that!) that one had become three. :)

For some reason the Corydalis thread has become unavailable to me ("An Error has occurred....."). Anyone else with the same problem? Probably not, as there are a number of new posts. I just can't see them. >:( Everything else seems OK.
