How can something so soft and fragile penetrate through rough snow? It is miracle of nature certainly. Saffron’s are one of first signs that winter is at the door, leaving. It might return again, but only for a short while. Saffron's grow in enormous quantities on Velebit and on all altitudes, from end of April till end of May, depending of the altitude and snow. Sometimes their carpet is so dense they are unfortunately unavoidable casualty of our shoes.
