That all looks so wonderfully refreshed, Pamela! Here in the extreme south of Greece there was apparently some quite heavy rain about two weeks before we came out, which did bring out some autumn flowers, but it's been pretty dry since and everything still looks extremely thirsty. A light rain a few days ago did briefly bring out a few more crocuses but the colchicums are mostly hiding still, and even the cyclamen look rather starved.
