What’s that purple flower?
Several of us stare down at the purple in question.
If it weren’t September, I’d say it was a crocus.
I take a few photos and move on. Between social activities supporting a family wedding, we’re on a flying visit to Glenveagh National Park and don’t have time to track down any of the gardeners who are, clearly, employed in these formal gardens.
A later search using Google Images offers a “best guess” of spring crocus: clearly not, given the time of year, but it does help by confirming that “crocus” reaction. My best guess is that it’s an autumn crocus.
