Canada about 9years ago said: I am so pleased that you enjoy my photo.
Brasil about 10years ago said: So delicate flower and give us Life.....Beautiful photo, Betty!
Australia about 10years ago said: It takes a keen and artistic eye to see the beauty in the contrast between dry, dead leaves and radiant new blooming. Life and death.
These flowers are also at home in Australia and are the rainbringers.

Hamilton, ON about 10years ago said: I grew up in central Germany and there is a plant with the same habits [not crocus family]but a deeper purple and more slender growimg in the meadows. It is highly poisonous and used in the treatment of gout.
