"Colchiques dans les prés
Fleurissent fleurissent
Colchiques dans les prés
C’est la fin de l’été…"

Colchicum autumnale ou colchique d’automne observés sur les bords de la route forestière de Nuits Saint-Georges à Broin dans la Basse Forêt de la Forêt Domaniale de Cîteaux
"Petit, vivace, glabre. Feuilles lancéolées oblongues, vert vif, groupées, apparaissant au printemps et se fanant avant la floraison. Fleurs mauve rosé pâle, ressemblant à celles du crocus, à long tube imitant un pédoncule, solitaires. Floraison en août et septembre. Fruit ovoïde apparaissant entre les feuilles. Diffère du crocus d’automne par ses feuilles, ses anthères oranges, et ses 6 étamines. Bois et prés humides." (Guide des fleurs sauvages aux éditions Delachaux et Niestlé)

Bonjour Gerard,
Excellent colours and details on these crocuses. Good composition. Very pretty, Thanks.

nice pic, no need for the frame though, TFS Ori

Hello Gerard,

I was very surprised when I saw the 'date taken' on this shot! Crocus have always been spring flowers!
Lovely details and soft, pastel shades. I like how the flowers appear to be looking up to the sky!

Kind regards,
Bev :-)

What a nice gathering of "naked ladies"... another common name for the autumn crocus... before you think me shameful. ;)

Very nice detail and color... well done. TFS.

Have a great weekend Gerard... :)

Bonjour Gérard,
J'ai tout de suite pensé à la chanson, lorsque j'ai vu ta photo. Cette fois-ci, c'est toi qui me devance! Je les avais aussi photogarphiés dernièrement, mais ta photo est bien supérieure. Je renocerai donc. Couleurs très naturelles et pas de surexposition.L'ensemble est présenté avec beaucoup de goût.
Bonne fin de semaine
Anne

Hello Gerard,

Alois when I see these flowers I have very mixed feelings as I know summer is gone. For sure I have a very good feeling looking at your photo as it has a very fine light showing well the colors of the flowers. There is aslo the pleasent contrast flowers do with background. The well focused image showing sharp detaisl of theflowers makes the photo even more attractive.

Thank you for sharing,
Cristian
