Crocus Flavus

Every year a few weeks after the first rains at the end of the Summer, in the paths and trails surrounding the hotel these little yellow flowers appear as an indicater of the Autumm aproaches.

Crocus flavus (syn. Crocus luteus, Crocus aureus), (Dutch yellow crocus) is a species of flowering plant of the Crocus genus in the Iridaceae family. It grows wild on the slopes of some Mediterranean countries with fragrant bright orange-yellow flowers which Tennyson likened to a fire. It is a small crocus (5–6 cm (2–2 in), despite the names of some cultivars, compared to the Giant Dutch crocuses.
