The Usual Suspects of Early Spring

Posted on

There are not that many options for blossoms in spring, however following having a dark winter those hardy little bloomers never feel dull to me.   Above is a set of ‘Ruby Giant’ crocus.   The comparison between the orange stamens, silvery purple indoors, and magenta-violet outdoors is actually wonderful if you narrow down to view it better.

These little guys make a wonderful S-shape from the west coast mattress.   They are leading us to sun and blue sky.

If yellowish sunlight and blue skies are not eager to appear, ‘Harmony’ dwarf iris will perform with the understudy.   It is difficult to capture the blue colour, but it is yummy and vibrant.

Pale blue decoration of the snow (Chionodoxa) contrasts with reddish-yellow ‘Angelina’ sedum from the backdrop.

‘Pink Giant’ chionodoxa are so lightly coloured I never appear to find a fantastic picture of them, however they are beautiful in concert with all the ‘Grand Maitre’ cocus.

Much More ‘Grand Maitre’ crocus emerge from woolly thyme with heavy crimson peony stems from the backdrop.

This ‘Pink Teacup’ hellebore plant is so cheerful it warrants a place in this post in addition to the previous one.   It is going to still be blooming in May if the small bulbs have been long gone.

Each of those adorable miniature bulb blooms together with boxwood leaves out of a secure corner to create this joyful Easter centerpiece.   The crystal basket originated out of my gardener grandma who passed away many years back, which was the very first time I had used it.
