There are signs of Spring which makes me feel so cheerful. In a pot at the front of the house, Prunus Kojo-no-mai is flowering beautifully. It only had a few flowers last year so is doing much better now.
A blue hyacinth in the back garden is flowering for the third year in a row (I think).
Primroses are blooming...
...as are Tete a Tete daffodils. The smaller daffodils seem to come back more reliably in my garden.
Crocus 'Jeanne D'Arc with the palest lilac lines inside the petals.
Reliable grape hyacinth...
...and a single anemone blanda.
More crocuses with some beautiful veining.
Pale blue scillas, shyly facing away from the camera.
Narcissus Jetfire - a single but very welcome survivor from a large group I planted a few years ago.
The stars of the garden must be the hellebores - this is a new one this year 'Harvington Single Red' which I bought mail order from here and would happily recommend as the plant was in lovely condition and has three buds on it, which I wasn't expecting.
This is Harvington Pink Speckled, (I think) and it has made a lovely clump in the garden. To see the markings, you do have to lift the flower up though.
Finally, Harvington Pink Picotee (I think) which is clumping up nicely too. Lots of colour to enjoy and more to look forward to, including tulips! I really enjoy this time of year.
