An early and prolific crocus

This crocus opened fully in great numbers throughout my garden today. This is the best-performing of all the 'species' crocus (crocuses? croci?) I have tried. I'm fairly certain it is Crocus tommasinianus, a selection that you can buy for pennies apiece from John Scheepers (www.johnscheepers.com). The catalog speculates that squirrels don't eat it, which may be why I have such success with it.
