Following are the dirctions for drawing the crocus on the right side: [The one on the left is just tilted a bit differently].
Draw this crocus lightly in pencil. We’ll shade with colored pencils in class
Begin by lightly sketching a circular clock in the upper left of your page.
Draw the stem from the lower as it bends, crosses the center, and points toward the 5 on the clock.
Add a pointed oval bloom on the tip of the stem, reaching from 5:00 to 11:00
Add modified ovals on each side of the middle petal. They tuck behind the middle petal and disappear.

Also behind those front petals and on the other side of the center are 3 more petals

Draw the third curved leaf on the right
