These are sooo pretty PT -
i've a couple of pots of them too i planted them up with Queen of the Night Black tulips and little heartsease like yours....but its been soooooooo wet this year im not sure i'll get any blooms on either of them as their probably rotten in the pot :(
Fingers crossed and if they appear i'll try and get a piccy this time :)

I'd forgotten about them... They are in a pot shielded at the side of the house. I hope they haven't drowned I was so proud of them last year!

It seems to be a bit early too doesn't it? I haven't seen signs of my crocus yet but I have got one or two Narcissus out both in a pot and in the garden - and in a new clay pot I've got Ranunculus growing! They are quite tall - no buds thankfully as of yet... But how weird is that?
