Winter Saffron


  1. What a gorgeous photo! Did you take it?

  2. Thank you so much! Yep... this one is mine. I just got these in the ground a month ago and didn't expect to see anything until spring.

  3. Yeah... crazy expensive... but the bulbs - not so much. I think most of the mark-up is that you get so few threads from one flower. That is a lot of real-estate for so little of a payoff.

    And then these things are so small... I can't imagine having the job picking all those tiny little saffron threads.

    Thank you all for letting me know you enjoyed the photo.
