We export loads and loads of wine from the big companies like Yalumba. I think this person is American. I mean, Google that 'Fage' yoghurt ...

Definitely not Canadian (which the crocus would hint at West coast this time of year) because there isn't any French on the yogurt containers.

If it is a saffron crocus, they do not flower until autumn.

I have six and they usually bloom here in late October. In Santa Barbara they bloom about a month earlier.

The leaves in the photo look a little wider than on my plants.

The bottle with the H is Hogue Cellar brand, a WA winery and there are several from Napa Valley area as well. I'm guessing CA area blogger.

Ok, who has a copy of Modernist Cuisine, lives somewhere in the East (south of Boston, because of the blooming crocus), has a wok, and eats Greek yogurt? All I can come up with is LindaK but she's here in the Boston area. Maybe she has a warm spot in her yard for the crocus....

It is a bit early for crocuses in NY but it's been a mild winter. I know Chris Hennes has practically cooked his way through "Fiesta" and owns MC so that's my stab in the dark.

Even with the warm winter, it's too soon for a crocus this far north--I wish!

Heidi does a good job taunting us with these posts, I can't guess this one either. The Italian cookbook has me stumped.

Since we are on the brink of the next food blog it is time to "spill the beans". Anna N's "stab in the dark" was right on target. We will be enjoying cooking and eating with Chris Hennes starting tomorrow.

My guess on the crocus is that Oklahoma has had virtually no winter this year.

Hey, we got almost an inch of snow! And it lasted for almost eight hours!

Just snow drops up here. Daffodils are poking up though. This should be fun!

My guess with tea being brewed that way is either Wholemeal Crank or Hassouni. Either way, I'm psyched!
