Don't wait for that special occasion. Today, tomorrow, and every day are special occasions. Use your saffron. She's worth it, and you're worth it.
~Naz Deravian

For Art Thursday, the lovely and valuable Crocus sativus. (Saffron is the stigma of the crocus.)

Cool photos (and illustration). Loved the closeup of the bee in the crocus with the saffron just sitting in there. The photo of the woman tossing the crocus leaves seemed joyous.
