    • Thanks Michael! I have plenty of these early tulips so my tulip season lasts until May. The Hepatica and Vinca were actually fairly late this year.

  1. What delightful spring flowers you have. The hepatica are lovely, I really must try to find some to put in my garden. I love the Spring Corner mix of bulbs – so cheerful!

  2. So lovely spring flower photos, Cathy! I´m happy that spring finally has arrived…
    Happy spring to you, too!

  3. A woodland in spring- wonderful. Is that a Pasque flower, if so I haven’t seen that colour before. It is a plant I should search for, thanks for reminding me.

    • Yes, Pasque flowers grow wild here but are then usually bluish-mauve. I have this red one as well as a purple and white one. They are pretty robust and amazingly survive dry heat all summer and still look good. The seedheads are a show for many weeks.

    • The scent is elusive Julie. I have only smelt them fleetingly on a warm windstill day. If I stick my nose in one, nothing! Many people dispute the fact that they smell at all, but it is a wonderful sweet fragrance. 🙂

    • Thank you Chloris, although I can’t take credit for growing the Hepaticas as they are all wild. But I am pleased with the red Pasque flower which has been going strong for several years now. The blue ones grow on the hillsides here, but I rather like this red one.

  4. I’m so glad you include the names on the slides–I don’t know Hepatica (I think that was it) at all! It’s such a sweet little blue flower. And it looks a bit like a wildflower. I also love your little spring corner! I’m sure you’re spending a lot of time in the garden right now and it shows. 🙂

    • Yes, Hepatica is a wild flower, and difficult to grow in a garden. The spring corner is always lovely and fades far too quickly, but there are still more tulips to come which I am looking forward to! It is lovely to be outdoors more often, but rather cool again today – just 10°C. Have a lovely weekend Debra!
