Photographer Rosie Nixon given the name ‘Tricolor’ due to its purple-lilac goblet shaped which also has a band of white and yellow at the base. I have quite a few of these in flower in the garden but during the winter months it’s not easy to take the image outdoors. Photographer Rosie gets the pictures and picked which can explore them with a macro lens indoors. Rosie captured this image just as the heat of the room was encouraging the crocus to open its goblet shaped flowers and reveal its nectar.
