     I planted these pots up in autumn 2011 - this is the second spring that they have delighted us image

    I had some tulips out before the daffs but when i looked in the parkers catalogue, it said they were the earliest ones. My hyacinths are still up only about 2 inches, my daughters are almost finished.

    Some beautiful photos everyone!  Here's my humble effort.  Only mini daffs, about the same size as the snowdrops, but they really made me smile this morning.image

    I've some very dainty dwarf tulips which came into flower today. Not at all like your traditional tulips, leaves are the same but flower heads are more a cross between a daff and tulip without the sticking out bit on daffs. They've produced 1 - 3 flower heads per stem.

    Zoomer 40, Adam Pasco wrote a blog on multi-headed tulips in Sept 2011.  If you put "Muliheaded tulips" into the GW search engine you can read it and perhaps put a variety to yours from the colour.  i have the species Tulipa praestans in my garden and they do flower early.  The kaufmanniana tulips flower early as well.  I find doubles like angelique flower later but do so look forward to those.

    Awww, I forgot about spring pansies that have survived the winter.  Here are yellow and blue ones on my friend's windowsill.  These do cheer you up o a cold spring day.

    Ranunculus 'Brazen Hussy'... an almost black leafed form of Celandine and one of the late Christopher Lloyd's favourites - he discovered the plant and named it... only he could have come up with that one...

    I just noticed it in flower today...
