Judy, I have a hard time imagining how your climate is different than mine. My colchicums all bloomed and went by long before the first snow fell here. And either you’ve had quite a bit more thaw than we have, or you’ve got X-ray vision! I certainly wouldn’t be able to see anything blooming underneath a foot or more of snow, which is what we’ve got on the ground right now.
What differentiates a bulb from a perennial plant is that the nourishment for the flower is stored within the bulb itself.…There is something miraculous about the way that a little grenade of dried up tissue can explode into a complete flower.
