A number of Crocus are starting to bloom in the garden here.

I watched this comical visitor in a pot of C. abantensis ,(ex Gotenburg seed sown March 07).
It spent an considerable amount of time in the cup.......eventually flying off to repeat the effort another 3 times.

Cheers Dave.

I am glad I still have summer without croci ;)

Is the colour of the abatensis that blue, Dave?

Yes Trond .The blue fades a bit towards the bottom of the cup.

I see a bud forming on another seedling so hopefully i will be able to compare for any variations in colour.

Cheers Dave.
