This crocus seems to have been confused by the recent warm temperatures. It also seems that its home in a bed of pachysandra doesn't support it very well. Note how it's long stem cannot support the weight of the flower with just a few raindrops on it.
Taken on the campus of Swarthmore College, outside the field house.
This flower is often one of the first signs of spring, but here it is seen with a fallen tree leaf, one of the first signs of autumn.
