Our table and chairs have spent the winter piled at one side of the deck. I didn't think much about their location until I stepped into the garden and saw what was hidden behind them . . .
this lovely clump of Galanthus 'Straffan' from Hitch Lyman's Temple Nursery bought "in the green" a number of years ago.
This lone G. nivalis 'Viridapice' bloomed for the first time this year. I am hoping its two siblings make an appearance.
G. nivalis 'Flore pleno' are bunched up rather than spreading. When they stop blooming I think it's time I spread them out.
Helleborus niger 'Sunset Group' from the late Seneca Hill Perennials. This is just starting to open on its rather short stems but it is an outward facing variety.
Also blooming are two varieties of Crocus, one red Hellebore and vernal Witch hazel. To see what's in flower in gardens near and far visit Carol at May Dreams Gardens who hosts this monthly meme.
