february flowers

Last week the crocuses, among my pretty marbled Cyclamen hederifolium leaves, were nothing more than spiky leaves poking up through the ground. By mid-week the yellow crocuses were in flower. Yesterday’s sun painted a pretty picture.

Flowering in a container are my new Iris reticulata ‘Clairette’ with sky-blue flowers, each fall being beautifully adorned with white throats and contrasting royal-blue tips.

Looking around the garden I found several other older dwarf irises, anemone St Brigid and a few snowdrops too. Just the one Hellebore in flower.

Although it is still winter and February often has a sting in its tail, these pretty blooms are a welcome sign of spring to come.

    It all looks wonderful. I’m surprised the anemone is out so early.
