These are autumn cocusses (crocusii?) , I believe. Sorry don't know their proper name. They are a bit taller with bigger flowers than the spring crocusses.

Ann, who didn't know that the photo on your top page wasn't your boat. I have never met you, after all :-)

Thank you for that I didn't know.

As to the other thing I was having a bad day. :~)

They are called colchicums, meadow saffron.

Mimi said...

Your right Sue, Colchicum autumnale
to give them their correct name. And very beautiful (if short lasting) they are too
