We’ve just had messy snowfall that has undone a lot of the progress that we had made toward Springtime. However, I will share a some of the flowers as they were before the snow, including the above lovely Pasque Flower which is about to show its purple flower in the new alpine bed.
Next to the Pulsatilla is this cute little Ornithogalum that flowers completely flat to the surface of the ground.
Also in the alpine bed is a new Corydalis
The hepaticas have continued to appear. Small little jewels.
Meanwhile the Adonis is still providing interest.
And we planted the wonderful Primula vulgaris after visiting England in 2008. They are prospering in various parts of the yard.
Meanwhile the first of the Glory of the Snow is starting to flower.
These are happily growing in the yard and the pasture.
Finally in the yard and the woods the scilla are growing now.
The stamens are a wonderful shade of blue.
It’s hard to ignore some of the lovely things happening in the greenhouse as well. In particular the ferrarias are now starting to flower.
And some of the other south africans
Spring is happening both outside and in the greenhouse. What can you contribute to Garden Blogger’s Bloom Day.
