crocus

A few weeks back I posted a picture of my violas¬†(Viola deltini ‘Rose Pink’),¬†which had been blooming their socks off for weeks come rain or shine (mostly rain). I had put some crocus bulbs (Crocus tommasianus ‘Whitewell Purple’) underneath, and they’ve come up a treat. They’re exactly the same colour as the violas, which I kind of like, but next time I think I’ll plant yellow or orange ones as more of a contrast…

These violas have been flowering non-stop since November. The winds of late have created a bit of a vortex on my patio and there have been pounding rains as well. But they’ve withstood it all. I planted some crocus to poke up through them – no signs of them yet, though.
