I have grown plants from a friends Epimedium 'Amber Queen' and possibly there were also seeds from other Epimediums in that mix, from the look of the plants I got.
Most have leaves which get damaged during winter or spring sun, but there is one especially good one with very nice leaves even now. It flowered for the first time last autumn (!), and I think I posted a picture of them then. Flowers were not as nice as these leaves:)
Another nice foliage plant in my garden is Tiarella 'Tiger Stripe' with nice brown leaves in spring. In summer they are more green.
Primula vulgaris ssp sibthorpii is the first one to flower of my primulas.
The last picture is just a nice clump of G.nivalis, but they are such good plants this time of year.

After several days of hard frost, the weather has turned spring-like.  Anemone blanda puts on a good show.  And this pale pink Ribes sanguineum delights the bumblebees.

Hello Claire,

Looks good, both the Anemones and the Ribes!

My (rather few) Anemones are also in flower but the buds on my Ribes sanguinrum has just started to swell.

Leena: Primula sibthorpii is also the first one to flower here (one year did so at the end of February!) and seems to remain in flower forever.

There is also P. sibthorpii 'Dr. Borgeson' thanks to a kind forumist; has light pink and white flowers

Few other flowering right now: Anemone nemorosa (with a couple of Podophyllum peeking from between)

Pachyphragma macrophyllum

Another one from P. vulgaris ssp. - ex. woronowii, or a hybrid.

Hi Rudi, I'm just catching up on everyone's wonderful pictures. Can you tell me please what is the little yellow flowered plant on the corner of your rock. Thanks.

Very nice spring flowers, and Pulsatillas are lovely!

There is also P. sibthorpii 'Dr. Borgeson' thanks to a kind forumist; has light pink and white flowers

That is very nice colour form. :)

Here it is still more snowdrop, crocus and hepatica season, but weather is now quite warm (almost +15) so flowers are advancing quickly.

I haven't been able to grow other spring Colchicums here except Bulbocodium vernum, but they would be very nice. Still, crocuses give a lot of colour and I love them.
As do butterflies.

C.malkensis is the first Corydalis to flower in my garden.
