"Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing. " -Helen Keller

Does anybody know what kind of flower this is?





It just bloomed in the middle of my backyard and it is beautiful. I am almost 100% certain it is a perennial (has a root/bulb structure similar to a lily). I think that flower would look lovely in front of my flower bed full of daffodils. I would love to buy some to plant next year.

Gorgeous blooms those!

I really have no idea what they are...but I would love to have them in my backyard! ;)

Another vote for crocus. They are very pretty!

I have some of those same crocus planted in a bed with some daffodils. They are so great--always the first to make an arrival in late winter/early spring!

Absolutely a crocus. But I love the daffodils more, of course ;)

A crocus, indeed. Just plant them between your daffodills. They will come back the next year, like the daffodills. They will be bright splashes of purple in a see of yellow...

They are everywhere here in the Netherlands. Every spring they are among the first to show their face. A sure sign spring is coming. I love them!
