Thank you, Hans.... do not think of this as "late"... everyone knows that Easter is a moveable feast!

Thinking about it I realised that I think I have buds on Narcissus requienii here at the moment.  I think that is the species I noticed buds on yesterday anyway.  Sort of cool that Hans delayed pics are almost coinciding with my current flowerings.   8)
Cheers.

I have a crocus in flower this morning, turned up where it didn't oughter. It looks like one of the vernus types, quite a soft lilac and pale buff on the outer petals. If the howling nor'wester that's blowing dies down a bit, I'll go out and take a pic.
