There's nothing like spring flowers for lifting the spirits. Inbetween the rain showers, I took my camera out into the garden the other day to record this none too tidy (I don't 'do' tidy) mix of springness!
In the overcast light the colours seemed to glow.
The Anemone blanda was particularly luminous!
Snakeshead Fritillary is one of Chris's favourite spring bulbs. These were putting on a fine show.
This beautiful Hepatica wasn't in the pot but is one of the few things that is flowering in the ground right now. They are difficult plants that hate any disturbance, so I was amazed to see it come up the year after my sweet husband dug a hole right through it to put up the Arts and Crafts birdtable that he'd made me!
I was given this plant about 25 years ago by a lovely old gent who I used to serve when I worked in a garden centre in London. Thanks Mr Hunt! Long may it survive! (-:
