Some spring flowers

Cypripedium formosanum, fortunately brought in before the sharp frosts this week.

Pleione speciosa, the original cultivated clone  - always a reliable performer.

A kind friend sent me bulbs of Narcissus 'Unknown Poet' last year. It has  neat round flowers and a very flat corona.

Narcissus 'Thalia' at the Yorkshire Arboretum.

Prunus yedoense in Ray Wood

Rhododendron parmulatum, in Ray Wood last week - sadly frosted this.

Lewisia tweedyi at RHS Garden Harlow Carr - where I am now a Garden Advisor.

A shimmer of Erythronium 'Pagoda' under Cornus at Harlow Carr.

Tulipa 'Exotic Emperor' frothing in a big pot at Harlow Carr.
