Nature: Autumn Blooming Crocus (Colchicum autumnale) near San Juan de Ortega, Autumn 2011.
It is hard to walk the Camino Francés in the autumn without steeping on a few of these flowers which poke up without accompanying green leaves. They are particularly abundant in the mid elevation places in the Montes de Oca and the Montes de León.
