My first tulips of this year are flowering - these are Single Early. I have lots more in bud and as I am just a little obsessed with them, I am sure there will be many more photos to come. The interesting thing is that these first two echo some of the other colours in the garden at the moment...
...such as the fuchsia/magenta pink of these primulas...
...and the delicate pale yellow of the primroses.
Then there is the fuchsia and purple Lathyrus Vernus, grown in a pot.
The anemone blanda from last year... (still in their original posts - shame on me for not planting them out!)
...echoing the pretty graduated blue and purple of the grape hyacinth - muscari latifolium.
Finally, a hellebore, with a primrose behind it and another Lathyrus which I planted a couple of days ago, having had to remove more montbretia. It looks like a little snapshot of Spring.
