Hi Poul, well spotted
With me it isn't birds but small children who sometimes like to walk off with labels...
I use 'Edding white paint markers', they do the job very well. So well I have to scrape it off with a knive to remove it...

August IRG: We are delighted to present a new Crocus species described from Northern Macedonia by the team of Dr Jānis Rukšāns, from Latvia and Dr Dimitri Zubov, from Ukraine. Jānis says he is transplanting crocuses every day, but the first ones are already starting to bloom.

Second article this month is from the Scot, Connor Smith, about his workplace, the Utrecht Botanic Garden, which is rightly famous for its innovative rock gardens.

Yesterday it was a 'big day' here because the summer dry crocusses got their first watering. The autumn is in the air now and if I can feel it I bet so can the crocusses. I figured it must be the right timing then...

Anyone else who has had the same yearly pleasure?

Ian Young was out on the 1st of September - giving his bulb-house plants their first "storm" of the season - as he always does.  For some in warmer areas, the storm may need to begin a little later for some fritillaries, for instance.

I bet he was Maggi  ;D
Except for one or two crocusses poking their tips through the gravel there isn't much happening above ground yet. But I'm sure the first water will induce growth and before we know it we can admire the first flowers (or so I hope at least).

Just two days ago there was nothing to be seen yet but then this evening when I visited the garden there they were, the first C. vallicola flowers just in the process of closing it's petals in the setting evening sun!

The 1st picture is the 'ordinary' C. armeniensis
The 2nd picture is C. armeniensis 'Goris'
And the 3rd are both in comparison (Goris on the right)

Assuming the stamen of the left one might be underdeveloped I leave the conclusions to whomever likes to make any  :D

Found some time visiting the botanical garden Munich today.. these Crocus cancellatus cancellatus must have liked this season, blooming as prolifically as I‘ve ever seen in this spot.

Two times Crocus pallasii subsp. haussknechtii from Iranian Kurdistan.
This species seems to be variable in colour and markings
