If you click on this picture, it’ll bring up a big version and you’ll be able to see more clearly the white crocuses dotted all over the field. There were wild crocuses (plural of crocus can be either crocuses or croci) everywhere in the Sudtirol at Easter. The thing I really wanted to discover about the croci was why are they mostly white? Perhaps 2% or so (that’s not based on scientific research) of the croci were purple but most of them were white. Sadly, I’ve not been able to discover why that is. Maybe you might know and coud tell me in the comments.
Anyway, on the Saturday before Easter, we took a chair lift up a mountain- where we were astonished to discover people still skiing- and then we took a leisurely stroll back down. It was glorious; the views of the Venosta/Vinschgau were just wonderful. You know I had my camera with me….
And, at the bottom. (Well, nearly) What a beautiful place the Südtirol is. I’m so lucky to live so close to so many gorgeous sights.
