Surprise


Crocus sativus. They sprouted in the studio. I didn't know if it was flower or leaf that was shooting every which way from each corm. They were the first crop planted when I arrived two weeks ago to begin working the farm.

Beautiful. A nice surprise.



Now, why didn't I harvest the saffron?

  1. Stunning. So, I'm a moron: These are fall-blooming?

  2. Yes ma'am. Preferably earlier autumn! But they couldn't wait any longer in the box and started living off their stores.
