Thanks Shelagh. As I said, my greatest concern was the summer rest, so I am glad you confirmed my suspicion that this species seems to prefer no warm dry rest. Being a keen reader of the bulb log myself I regularly give sulfate of potash to nearly all my bulbs anyway.

Btw, nice clump of Pritzelago. Very spicy and good in a salad as well as good-looking  ;)

It starts to look a bit like spring in SW Ontario; snowdrops were in flower  since a couple of weeks ago and few Eranthis but not much else.
Iris reticulata 'North Star', usually the first reticulata to flower; not particularly reliable here, it needs a well drained location.

The first Pulsatilla - P. styriaca

Surprinsingly a young Helleborus purpurascens with a first flower; the older ones are not up yet. 

Everyone is in need of more sunny days at this point :)

Thanks. Your part of the World and your garden don’t look to bad either 8), you’ve shown lovely plants and combinations of them. What would this anemone do when sown?
Considering a pleasant bulb collection, northern part of The Netherlands might be a bit ahead, still it’s nice to find more patches of ‘common’ ones in borrowed space.

Looks pretty new, rows and no clumping/ lumping, these are not on my everyday round.
However, borrowed (bulb) season will end in one/two months, in the containers there will still be treasures and pleasures. As more inspiration is welcome, I’m curious how your Diplacus is  going to do (and of course others ).

Your early spring pictures are lovely and a good reminder of my growing appreciation for this time of year. Pulsatilla styriaca looks cuddly.

Always useful to know which plants are a good addition to the kitchen as well.  :)


Spring is here?

Fritillaria minuta, most snow we got this season ( so far).

Many beautiful pictures from everyone who posted them.
It makes me wish my old body would let me use a camera.
At least I can still enjoy looking at yours.

Thanks for the culinary hint regarding Pritzelago Temte.

Rudi what a magnificent Magnolia always one of my favourites.

Looking at all your wonderful pics everyone I think I'm going to have to up my game when photographing. No more point and aim, a little more effort is required I think.

Shelagh,
thank you for your comment. It is always a disappointment, when the
long awaited flowers get destroyed by a late frost.
