festival of spring #4

April so far has a been one day warm sunshine and showers, the next frigid winds and mizzle. But the spring flowers still continuing to dazzle us with their beauty. This week something else from my own garden,

Anemone St Brigid

I am going to join in with Dawn’s Festival of Spring which will last for 10 -12 weeks in celebration of this season.


  1. Very pretty, Jude.

    1. Heyjude says:

      This is a lovely anemone, but they are suffered a bit from the unusually warm weather in March and I think I need to plant them deeper next time. I will move these into the garden when they finish and hope that they might return next year.

  2. Wow, Jude such vibrant colors!

    1. Heyjude says:

      I thought there would be more colours, but I seem to have this pink and a blue. My other anemones are red so a bit of a clash going on there!

      1. I think they are gorgeous!

    A lovely Spring flower Jude and another pop of colour in your garden . Perhaps in pots is the way to go ..I’ve not had much luck planting corms in the past. Sometimes succumb to buying a bunch from a certain supermarket but would rather grow my own Lol

      Most of my spring bulbs are in pots. Easier than finding space in the beds. Next year I must try Ranunculus.

    Such a bright pink

    Beautiful! I’m missing our spring flowers because I’m with my sweetheart for the next few weeks. I didn’t want to be specific elsewhere, being of a cautious nature, but can’t help posting a few unseasonal pictures (for us) having thoroughly dwindled down my stock of things to share over the last couple of years.

      How lovely to get away, though I must admit I love spring in England. The best time to be here.
