Fall is coming!

The colchicums are blooming and that can only mean one thing. Fall is coming! And hopefully, along with that, some much needed rain!

No idea which one this. They were a gift.

This pink colchicum started blooming September 9, 2021

Deer resistant. Drought resistant. Somewhat slug resistant, not that there are many of those slugging around with how dry it is.

My favorite part is the intricate patterning, sort of an intertwined, crosshatched affair of converging lines and trapezoids.

Mesmerizing!
