These three plants are ex Cherry Blossom, seeds from Gabriela.
All are really nice, keepers, but I especially like the first one.
When we were taking photos of these, my husband asked why flowers of Helleborus look so down. I answered that they protect the productive parts that way, so rain wouldn't get there.
Looking around he said, but Anemone nemorosa looks up in good weather and closes it's flowers in bad. There was nothing I could reply to that. :)

The first one flowers for the first time though it was sowed already in 2015. A really nice plant I think.
Then couple of 'Rose Qartz' plants.
And the last one is the best yellow which I already showed a close-up.

Leena,

Lovely blooms!   You are way ahead of me!  The only Corydalis I have blooming are filistipes and solida.

The pale pink is a real beauty.

Thanks Marc and Jeff.
I like the pink one too, but it's flowers are quite heavy. It is different from all the other 'Berry Swirl' sister seedlings which are darker.

Great seedlings Leena! The first one is very similar with the mother-plant and I like a lot the others! I don't have any doubles from it, but I gave away many seedlings so who knows maybe others enjoy some like yours :)

All the others are also lovely!
