20/3/10: Crocus pocus

Approaching Bexleyheath station by train, I noticed the Crocus tommasinianus on the up embankment (by Station Rd, between Glengall Rd and Church Rd) were going over.

Here's a picture taken from Station Rd on the 6th March 2009, when I first came across the colony, which is fairly extensively naturalised here.

This clump of the same species was on the north side of Bursted Wood, near the hospital entrance - and is seen here on 1st March this year. There are also planted Daffodils along this fringe, but I hadn't noticed the Crocus before.
