Three weeks ago Hilary planted some crocus sativa bulbs in the ground hoping they would grow and yield some saffron – next autumn – the books said bulbs planted now would bloom next autumn.
But look! Within only days they’ve not only broken through the ground but some have begun to blossom just like this one.
Isn’t that astonishing?
From a little bulb that you wouldn’t even know was alive, buried in the ground, and within three weeks it grows into this beautiful crocus with its three strands of saffron.
Bursting with life…..
