Meadow saffron - Colchicum

I always get a thrill at this time of the year when these flowers start to push through the grass, as there is only a flower but no leaves there is no warning of the bloom to come, hence one of their common names naked ladies. In a few weeks they will be in full bloom, die away and their leaves will appear in Spring.
