About Me

My photo
London, United Kingdom
This blog will contain pictures and information from my everyday encounters with nature in London and the surrounding areas. I will log details of the origin of each photograph thus recording what there is to be seen and where it was seen. I very much welcome anyone else who can upload photos and information about nature in London and the home counties. I work freelance in the film industry so have plenty of days off. I hope to update Monday to Friday and once on the weekend posting at around 19.30, I don't post on bank holidays

Walham Green Fulham

I expect most people love seeing Crocuses in bloom, they are a sign that spring has arrived or is just about to. The photo above was taken yesterday. There are around 80 species of Crocus. They are part of the Iris family and can be found over large parts of the world including the middle east and China. Saffron which is pound for pound the most expensive spice is extracted from the Saffron Crocus. They are hardy perennial flowers which means they will live for longer than two years. Where as an annual plant seeds perennial plants survive on their root stock.
