Until now, the winter has been mild. Walking outside I can hear the birds singing. They make typical spring sounds. Do they think it is spring already?
To enjoy the garden I have to go down on my belly. Snowdrops are blooming in the front garden, the first herald of spring. These snowdrops are called Galanthus Elwesii. They are more resistant to dry conditions and are slightly larger than regular snowdrops. Galanthus Elwesii is showing off. I love that in this time of the year. Next to the snowdrops is a rose. I can see some rosebuds already!
Soft pink cyclamen are blossoming under the plum tree. How cute do these little flowers look. In a pot, a little bit further away, I see leaves of anemone Coronaria ‘The Bride’. They will bloom together with the tulips 'White Triumphator'.
The green flowers of Helleborus corsicus has appeared at the side of the house. In a gap between the wall and the path, the plant has seed itself. A plant with initiative! To protect the pollen against the rain, the flowers of Helleborus are always faced downwards. As I lie down on the path, I can take a picture of the inside of the flowers.
Brrrr! The ground does not feel like spring, though. It is wet and cold.
Patience Hetty, patience!
Galanthus Elwesii, always first flowering
