My first colchicum is up but hasn’t pinked up yet.
This is Colchicum byzantinum.
Most colchicums emerge white and then pink up over the next few days.
Did you know I am a colchicum evangelist, spreading the good news of colchicums wherever I go? For some of my earlier messages, check out the archives.

Mother Earth just closed up the drapes on another year and it’s time to reflect on what’s come before.
