These crocuses were spread in drifts across most of a small pasture next to an old farmyard on the west side of Highway 47, somewhere between the Handsworth Dam (Moose Mountain Lake) and Highway 48. I wasn't keeping track of where we were, but I seem to recall a sign for "Braemar Road" just a little bit of north of this site.
We stopped for a picture, but the big surprise was yet to come.
I'd heard of white forms, but these were the first I've ever seen.
Please don't brave that highway to go and dig them up. If you must have crocuses, you should be aware that they do not transplant well, but with a little know-how, they can be readily grown from seed.
Skills, people, skills. Practical skills.
