The weather this autumn has been back and forth, some spring-like days mixing in between frosts, and some days that are downright summery.
Which may explain why the fall blooming crocus, which I did not expect to bloom this first fall, did bloom this fall. Not all of them but a couple, and thus I have my first harvest of homegrown saffron. (I am a saffron rice addict.) Yum!
Now, here's hoping the squirrels continue to ignore the "tasty" bulbs and I get flowers next year too!
