    These look like crocus to me that usually bloom in late winter and early spring? The only thing different is that I don’t see the little green leaves and it looks like they are growing out of some sort of forest floor mulch. Hmmm, now I am thinking they are not crocus. But then, what are they?

      These are Colchicum Rosy Dawn’s I think (they were already here in several spots when I bought my farm), also known as autumn crocus, meadow saffron, or naked lady. Throughout the spring and into summer there are green leaves where the corms live and then in late fall, pink crocus after their leaves dry up and disappear.
