Thanks, Tony, but what I have is nothing like this and I'm pretty sure it
is not C. vernus owing to the details of the style and stigma. Your plant
is interesting, though -- the kind of thing that makes me wonder about

If I ever get it together to get a new computer and learn how to hook the
camera to it, I will start putting pictures on also, although with my slow
Internet connection I will not be doing much of it. I am going to send a
slide of the mystery crocus to John Lonsdale in hopes he can ID it.
