Crocus tale: Greece to the Adirondacks

(Continued)

Before this etymological journey, I never knew saffron came from Crocus sativus. My first memory of the yellow spice is of a McCormick glass jar among my maternal grandmother’s seasonings. I purchased the crocus corms locally and planted them in 2008 when I purchased my home.

Tuesday morning when I saw the Heraclesan crocuses thrust through the snow, it uplifted and inspired me to weather what may come my way as gracefully.
