My first Sternbergia of the season, Sternbergia sicula at around the same time as per previous years.

It seems the conditions for Sternbergia are perfect this season.

some more Sternbergias

Sternbergia lutea - originally a collection from Spain (where the species isn't native)
and Sternbergia close to greuteriana which obviously attracted hoverflies a lot
