Crocus in Århus City Hall Park

April 9, 2010

Today I watched another of the numerous miracles of spring: Millions of blue-white crocuses blooming in the City Hall Park in Århus:

Thanks a lot to the people in the City Hall who took the decision – and to the gardeners who planted all these lovely crocuses 🙂

    Oh my goodness, Truels, that is soooo beautiful! Such a labour of love, to plant so many crocuses – and what a lovely gift to share with the world to signal the birth of spring. I’m sure it makes people feel lighter and happier when they see these flowers as they walk past.

      Yes it made me – and others – smile and comment how beatiful it was, and several were taking photos. Nice to have a smiling city-center in Århus:-)

      Thank you Carsten. It would be nice to know, if anybody have seen other places, where they plant spring-onions like here…?

    truels, this is beautiful, just like the flower carpet. I’ve never seen a crocus in person before, do they have a nice aroma?

      Here in Denmark crocus has been in gardens for many years, but I think in the last 10-20 years many municipalities and also private companys has planted many crocuses – and other spring-onions. But this planting around the City Hall of Århus is one of the most impressive, I have seen. (It could be interesting if other people tell about other beautiful plantings!?) I don’t think crocus has much aroma or fragrance – like hyacinth for example (they just starter flowering now here)

    What a gorgeous carpet of flowers! We grow them here in the USA, but I’ve never seen them in such abundance.

      Like I told Nye, we have a lot of these spring onions here in Denmark nowadays, I will show some more later…. But what about other spring onions in USA? Which ones are common seen?
