A few that caught my eye today


The weather has been dry but a cool wind has made it chilly but the plants are coming to life.

Three different Ribes

Lysichiton americanus (Skunk Cabbage), it has bad press about being invasive but after 7 of so years still tiny

Caltha Paultris (Marsh Marigold)

Ficaria verna ‘Brazen Hussy’ (Lesser celandine)

Hieracium maculatum ‘Leopard’
I like the leaves, the flowers are on long stems and not great but the leaves are different

Prunus × subhirtella ’ Autumnalis’ – flowering again.

Chionodoxa luciliae

Great spread of chionodoxas -lovely little souls aren't they?
Your marsh marigolds are beautiful. I miss these - mine died and the ones in the village stream have disappeared (so suddenly I think they must be in someone's garden pond...)
Thanks for the memory!

Lovely Dawn...All the blues of the Chionodoxa is really eye catching, I have the vast amount of two, its a joke isn't it, they just don't catch on here, I keep trying....

Loving those Ribes.....ours are not as far on as yours!!!
Brazen hussey has been given the elbow ಠ_ʖಠ it was spreading like a rash!! not good in a tiny garden like ours...pleased to find out what that spotty plant is named, been around for years here, Caltha has disappeared, again? ʕ´• ᴥ•̥`ʔ no idea why, perhaps too dry.... all looks great in your patch Dawn..(•‿•)

Your Cherry tree looks great, Dawn! And all those Chionodoxa luciliae, or Glory-of-the-snow, to give them their popular name, look "glorious"!
