Fall Crocus

One of the hidden signs of Fall is the Autumn Crocus, buried in the dense leaf fall of the woods. I am not sure if this is a False Autumn Crocus, or a Saffron, or both or neither. But they are so delicate on wispy mushroom-like stems, short lived, and I was delighted to catch sight of these.

So ethereal and delicate and such an usual color to be found on the Autumn leaves.
I've never seen an Autumn Crocus. Now I have.
