Autumn Crocus Conqueror

Labor Day, the unofficial end of one season and beginning of another, is a transitional time like no other. It might be a time to enjoy the fall foliage, collect gourds and marvel at mum selections, but this change of seasons just doesn’t excite me like other times of the year. It’s hard to describe why “Fall Back” doesn’t feel as fresh and filled with anticipation as “Spring Forward.” Don’t get me wrong, I like fall. I even like winter (for the most …

Autumn Crocus Play

The Little Free Library project is a remarkable endeavor. Not only does it promote reading, but it cultivates creativity in the design and construction of the libraries themselves. The number of libraries I’ve encountered has increased dramatically over the three years I’ve been biking around Saint Paul. When I saw my first Little Free Library riding on a Cherokee Heights street in August 2011, it was a novelty. Now they’re so abundant that I glimpse …

I dedicate this post to my brother, who departed this earth, one February, three years ago this week. After his passing I planted a little corner of our garden in his remembrance. A neighbour had given me a pot of Autumn Crocus bulbs which I planted as a border in this garden. Unbeknown to me, in the southern hemisphere, Autumn Crocus flower in February. My brother was only 43 when he left us, in a senseless accident, leaving behind a nine year old …

Autumnale crocus Colchicum speciosum

[Updated 4/5/13: leaves pic ] From Hiroko: Japanese name of Colchicum is – (inu-safuran). Safuran is transliteration for Saffron. There is no Japanese name in Chinese character for it since it is only phonetically translated. Inu is dog in Japanese, and it is often used as a prefix to describe for something similar but of lesser quality and useless. Therefore, Colchicum looks alike Saffron, but it is useless not like Saffron. I saw it for the first …

Autumn Crocus cancer

By Avi Landau By mid-October, the long, slender, curly, and deeply red petals of Japan`s HIGAN BANA (spider lilies) have fallen away- in fact they have disappeared altogether- without even the slightest trace (blown away?). And since these amazing flowers of autumn bloom on stems without leaves (these grow in later), all that remain of them are limp dull green stalks- in thick clusters. The fact that these flowers grow mostly on temple grounds, in …
