CrocusTruly a happy flower, crocuses emerge in spring, so won’t be around in Australia for Valentines’ Day, but there are plenty of other occasions when they are the perfect bloom. Do you want to express cheerfulness, glee, mirth? Are you celebrating the birthday of a friend who makes you laugh, or a young acquaintance with an important milestone coming up? Crocuses have long been linked to youthfulness and joy.
