At the moment the weather can’t make up its mind what it should do, one minute it is beautifully sunny, the next, raining again. During a spell of sunshine lately I managed to nip to the woodland to see if the Tommies were open in the sunshine, the Tommies I’m referring to are of course Crocus tommasinianus, a species crocus which is thinner and smaller than the Dutch Crocus and goes beautifully with all the snowdrops.
This one has seeded itself in amongst the roots of a huge ash tree along with seedlings of primroses.
There are some darker ones, these are C.tommasinianus Whitewell Purple.
A few crocus amongst all the snowdrops, at the front are G. Cedric’s Prolific.
The crocus are seeding about, but I think next autumn I will buy a few more to add to what we already have, let’s hope the squirrels don’t discover them.
As soon as the sun comes out, my husband knows he will find me in the woodland, enjoying the snowdrops and their friends the Tommies.
