I did a double-take when I saw these in the neighborhood! They look like gigantic crocuses to me, and it’s entirely the wrong time of year for those.
I have since come to find out that there are autumn crocuses, too, but I remain skeptical. Perhaps you’ll be able to pin down the answer: are these crocuses, or a similar-appearing flower?
They seem somewhat popular: at least two houses in the neighborhood have got ’em. And I can see why: they’re gorgeous! Pipa and I took a slow walk round to look at them, and she was gracious enough to be patient while I got contorted into all sorts of angles taking photos for ye.
When you get up super-close, you see a sort of criss-cross pattern of darker purple lines in their petals. Really pretty!
I took about a trillion shots from different angles. Okay, 25. It was 25. I really love how they look against the board fence.
I may turn some of these into prints: if you’d like, go check out the whole collection, and tell me which ones you think are the bestest ever. There’s bonus Pipa with poppies there, too! She was ever so helpful.
Have a last lovely look, and if you know what our beauties are, I’m dying to know!
