Little flower buds emerging.


Little flower buds emerging. (Eranthis hyemalis (Winter aconite))

Here they come! Like little choir-boys with their ruffs.

Oh Aconites.......I love these Spritz.......

I have planted lots of aconites over the years but they disappear! These look beautiful - must search for mine.

That's funny - so do mine! I wish I could get them to spread.....

I have those, they were here when we moved here, and have spread quite a bit.
Love them too!

Pretty little things, aren't they - I just wish mine would spread like yours, Michaella.

Are these the same that grow wild in the woods or a cultivated variety? They are very pretty and a great description, Spritz.

Thanks, Gee - sorry, I have no idea if they grow wild - I've never seen any, but they must be native plants somewhere, mustn't they?

Forget what I said, Spritz - another senior moment. I was confusing them with Celandine...... oh dear, now where did I put those memory tablets :)

7 Feb, 2010

 

Ah-ha! Yes - and I don't like celandines in the garden - they're almost impossible to get rid of - unlike these - unless you are Amy, of course! LOL. She seems to have the spreading kind - lucky Amy. :-)))

I too (like Gardenmad) have planted these hard little bulbs and they never appeared. Wondered if the squirels have had them. Yours are lovely.

I'm going to look out for more potted up, to see if I can get them to establish that way - I have a feeling that they may be like snowdrops - and need planting 'in the green'.

8 Feb, 2010

 

Would you believe it.!!! I noticed them comming up today, planted 2 years ago and no sign untill now.

19 Feb, 2010

 

Oh, that's good news! A lovely surprise.. :-))
