Crocus sativus Saffron

I have waited to photograph Saffron or Crocus sativus for many years.
Of all the plant species on the planet bulbs are my favourites and this one is special. Not only is it a valuable crop it’s the only plant that I am aware of where we use the the stigma as a seasoning and colouring agent in food. Not only that but the flower is a gorgous mix of colours.
