These are so dainty. I hadn't realized there was an autumn bloomer.

Thanks everyone. Yes Greenthumb there are various types of Autumn crocus over here. It looks even better now because there are are about six flowers up out of the ground, no foliage just flowers sticking up. The foliage you see on the picture belong to some "Grape Hyacinths" which will not flower until next Spring.
