Alpine crocus

For me, one of the highlights of the end of the skiing season in the Alps is the appearance of the wild crocus. As the snow recedes they start popping up, the white ones pop up first followed by the purple. This year they all started springing up suddenly over a warm weekend and were just looking lovely when winter returned and buried them under a blanket of snow and they were gone again.
