Spring Crocus Night Light

Crocus are always the first flowers to bloom each year - especially in chilly climates like Northern Montana.  But, did you know, Crocus have a special, waxy cuticle that protects them from the cold?  That is why they are able to pop up even if there is still snow on the ground.  These delicate flowers also close up every night to shelter themselves from frigid nighttime weather.

The word "crocus" comes from Greek mythology - named after a Greek boy called Krokos.  Krokos was loved by Hermes.  One day, Hermes accidentally injured Krokos when the two were playing, killing him.  It is believed that grief-stricken Hermes transformed Krokos' into the crocus flower and the three blood drops that had fallen became the three stigmata of a Crocus flower.  

There are over 75 species of Crocus flowers, all over the world - one of which is actually the Saffron flower.

All my products are handmade, handcrafted, and homegrown, from start to finish.  The flowers are grown in my own backyard garden in Kalispell, Montana.  Each flower is handpicked and slow-dried to maintain color and shape.  No pre-dried, freeze dried or artificially dyed flowers are used.
