Winter may be approaching in Rossland but that doesn’t mean the end of garden delights. This colourful batch of colchicum autumnale (commonly known as autumn crocus) was found in Lower Rossland. The green leaves come up in spring and die back in the heat of summer. Then the little flower comes up in the fall without leaves.
