Ready or not, here we come!
The flowers, that is. They are blooming ahead of schedule, some of them by several weeks. The witch hazel Diane, Hamamelis x intermedia ‘Diane’ is bewitching.
The earliest daffodil, perhaps Narcissus psuedonarcissus, is just dilly.
The snowdrops, Galanthus elwesii are snowing, if not dropping. (From Old House Gardens, this variety blooms earlier, does better in the South and is not easy to locate.)
The grocery primrose is primping.
The hellebores, Helleborus orientalis are anything but boring.
No, not boring at all.
The Crocus Queens are holding court in the knot garden, C. chrysantha ‘Gypsy Queen’ and C. chrysantha ‘Violet Queen’.
Down in the Fairelurie Garden, the tommies, Crocus tommasinianus ‘Roseus’ are ready….
…Ready and open for business. It’s a good thing, too. The honeybees showed up on the day of the grand opening. I guess all is as it should be then, pay no attention to the calendar.
