Saffron

The supposedly best saffron comes from Iran's Khorrasan Province.

I'm not wild about saffron. However, I've heard that saffron is wild about me.

The title of the thread reminded me of this:

I'm just mad about Saffron
Saffron's mad about me
I'm just mad about Saffron
She's just mad about me

Also ...
An amusing derivative of the plant is colchicine. It can make horticulture unpredictable.

The biggest problems we are facing right now have to do with George Bush trying to bring more and more power into the executive branch and not go through Congress at all and that’s what I intend to reverse.

Beautiful flowers, quite arid; I wonder what source of irrigation is used on those fields in those pics?
