Many familiar "croconuts" over here...  ;D

I might add some of mine that flowered over the past few weeks :

1) Crocus biflorus isauricus from Akseki
2 and 3) Crocus biflorus nubigena
4) Crocus fleischeri from Gulek Pass
5) Cocus x reticulatus 'Janis Ruksans' out in the garden

A crocus-etravaganza!  Please add some of these beauties to our image gallery.  Amazing that these are all blooming in Feb.  I have a number of these in my garden but late April-May is the blooming season...they will be distant memories to the UK people at that stage.

Hi "neighbour",

I've said it before but I'll say it again. I love your Crocusses, especially C. biflorus nubigena with those black anthers.

Is there an idiot's guide to adding to the Gallery please?

Well, there is no "Idiot's Guide", but being something of a computer idiot, I'll take a stab at explaining it...  
**(see message below from Mark McDonough)

The Gallery being referred to is on the NARGS Main Website - "NARGS Photo Galleries".  To get there, note at the top of each page within this forum site, where it says "Click here to go to the NARGS Main Website".

Once you are there at the main website, you will see a tab for "NARGS Photo Galleries" down the left side of the page.  (Click on it if you would like to browse the photos or to see how the galleries are set up.)

At the top of the main website page, immediately under the NARGS title banner, you will see "WIKI".  Click on it to see instructions for various topics.  Ones that may be helpful are "How to prepare WIKI photos" and "How to upload photos".  

Alternatively, if you have already clicked on the NARGS Photo Galleries tab and are on that page now, you can access this same info by clicking on either the "WIKI" or the "How to do it" tabs that run across the top of the screen.

(NB.  One caution.... When you are uploading photos to the photo galleries, please ignore the bit where it says "Maximum image size is limited to 24 MB".  This is NOT true and I hope if I keep whining about it, it will finally get corrected some day  ???; the max image size is actually ~500 KB, as is explained in the text.)

I hope this is helpful!  
Lori

EDIT:  Oops! As Mark mentioned, one does have to be a NARGS member and then "apply for" a username and password (a very short process) to post on the NARGS Main Website.  I forgot to point that out.  Sorry to cause confusion!

I'm sorry David, there seems to be some confusion.  Now that the NARGS Forum is open to anyone who applies (and is approved), we have a mix of NARGS members and non-NARGS members here, an excellent development in my opinion :D  However what might not be so clear to forum moderators, is who is a NARGS member and who isn't, which doesn't matter here in the forum, but it does matter for other components of the NARGS.ORG site as a whole.  Editing access to the NARGS Wiki and Image Galleries is restricted to NARGS members only, NARGS members themselves still need a separate login account to gain edit-access to them, see:
http://nargs.org/nargswiki/tiki-index.php?page=Frequently+Asked+Question...

Of course, anyone on the internet can access the NARGS Wiki & Image galleries for general browsing.

David, we're always very happy to have your photo contributions on the NARGS Forum, where photos are simply uploaded along with a message.  If however, you'd like to share any photos to be added to the NARGS Image Galleries, I'm sure that Todd Boland would be pleased to accept them and add them in on your behalf (you could send him a PM, or send to his email available in his forum profile page), it's totally up to you.

Again, sorry for the confusion, I hope that makes things clearer. :)

Just a further thought about the Gallery. As I'm not a NARGS Member and therefore can't add images to it I would be perfectly happy (indeed I'd be deliriously happy!) if anyone thought one of my images was good enough to add to the Gallery and did just that.

I feel exactly the same David !
Some more Crocus :

1 and 2 : This was supposed to be Crocus corsicus, but according to highly respected specialists, it is not, because of the yellow throat.  Could be a hybrid involving C. Imperati.
But I like it anyway...  ;)
3 and 4 : The same Crocus sieberii sublimis 'Tricolor' as Wim showed.
