Some more of spring crocuses, seen today during one of our small hikes - this is a small herbaceous plant, discreet and easy to overlook. It grows from a corm or a bulbo-tuber, and it produces three to four long and narrow leaves, heavily marked by that thick central whitish line. Flowers, solitary and cup-shaped, were often seen growing very close to the ground; they were white or various shades of blue, and uniformly coloured without patterns.
