What are these??
When I was a kid, we had some of these bulbs that poked up through our lawn every spring. They weren't exactly like these, but I can tell they are of the same family, just a slightly different color. Ours were redder with black mottling and we had some that were pink as well. They come up every year and their greenery is very sturdy. I just loved them as a kid and I want to plant some in my yard. My mother told me they were crocus, but don't think that they are, as every crocus I've ever seen or planted has been different then these, different shaped blooms, more delicate foilage and an earlier showing. But I don't know the name!
