the start of the flowers
The flowers are just beginning to appear, a couple of weeks from now I expect more than one hundred of the grape hyacinths, I love the lime green in the white flower below and I have forgotten it's name. Many years ago I grew Primula's from seed. I ended up with massive plants, a couple of feet across. I have white ones as well but they get so battered in the rain.
The hellebore I have had for ages and there used to be a whitish one that came up in this same clump but not yet this year. I saw a group of about 10 white ones at the entrance to a park.
Further down the mountain side, the pansies, crocus, and daffs are making an appearance.
These photos have been cropped, there are no other flowers around.
