Hi, Mark, nice to see these pix. That lovely P. allionii just hits the right spot. I was thinking the other day that surely someone out there must have some coming into flower and , hey, presto, yours arrives! Makes me feel like spring cannot be too far away, even with the wintery weather we're having at the moment. Very cheering, and, of course, I never met a cyclamen I didn't like ;D

Mark, we'd like to know a little more about you, and while a visit to your website helps, could I ask you if you'd be so good as to make a post in "Let me introduce myself" to do just that?

David, The Daphne came in a pot as the present but was planted straight away in the only place available next to a large Magnolia Leonard Messel. I would have liked it next to the back door for scent but alas not even a shoe horn could get it in.

Forgot to post this Scilla amoena grown from AGS seed. Didn't think about the effect of taking a blue flower against a blue sky, when I bent down to a get the view from beneath.

Mark,

Personally, unlike Maggi, I could live without the primula but adore the cyclamen esp C. pseudibericum, a real beauty.

John, love the scilla.

Two leucojums and a muscari from the garden - well, Leucojum vernum is in the open garden, while Leucojum roseum and Muscari 'Golden Fleece' are growing in a cold glasshouse.

I don't know about east and west but I'm beginning to think it's not true that "never the twain shall meet" so far as north and south are concerned. Following some rain last week, my Leucoium roseum is up and in bud. Be just a few days before it opens.

I've always spelt it with an "i" rather than a "j" but I suppose we have to call it Acis now anyway.

Lesley,

You have come in a very timely manner to the assistance of my failing brain. 'Acis' it is. I had been trying to think of the new name and it wouldn't come to me.

This flowering of A. roseum is out of season for me as I had flowers last autumn.

Always with a 'j' here.

Ah yes Acis... but should that be Axis, Acksis, Ache-is, Akiss etc etc... how are we to say the ruddy thing without getting into bother with some classicist somewhere?

apologies for the pink Eranthis 'Pauline' I think I was blinded by the extreme white light coming off the snowdrops. (evil laugh) I now have a plant of 'Pauline' and can assure everyone it is pale yella

I did wonder if 'Pauline' was blushing slightly in her first photo! You can see in this new pic that there is a hint of pink, even there. She is very pretty and a lovely transition between the yellows and the whites of pinnatifida and stellata.
