So, I have found for you the four basic colours of crocus that are to be found in Newark Cemetery, opening up now in all their glory but no early bees feeding off them in these winds.
Bees are a little late for me this year, I've usually seen the first brave buzzers around mid February the last couple of years. They are about the only things I've seen round here that appear to be late this spring.
I wonder what the flavour of a crocus really is. The squirrels certainly enjoy eating them; the shy little fellow in the below pictures I caught red handed in the act of nabbing a purple one and scooting up a tree.
