Does anybody know what kind of flower this is?

It just bloomed in the middle of my backyard and it is beautiful. I am almost 100% certain it is a perennial (has a root/bulb structure similar to a lily). I think that flower would look lovely in front of my flower bed full of daffodils. I would love to buy some to plant next year.

    I think it’s a crocus. I’m so jealous!

    I have some of those same crocus planted in a bed with some daffodils. They are so great–always the first to make an arrival in late winter/early spring!

    Absolutely a crocus. But I love the daffodils more, of course πŸ˜‰

    A crocus, indeed. Just plant them between your daffodills. They will come back the next year, like the daffodills. They will be bright splashes of purple in a see of yellow…

    They are everywhere here in the Netherlands. Every spring they are among the first to show their face. A sure sign spring is coming. I love them!


    Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving a comment. Blackmail photo’s indeed!
