  1. John,
    Such lovely flowers and most new to me. I'm not at all a rtose guy, but Rosa spinosissima (altaica) is stunning, that is my kind of rose. Reminds me of the wild roses (perhaps rugusa)on the small islands in Maine.

  2. Hello, wonderful photos of your spring flowers.

    I do like your violas and Narcissus poeticus.

    Happy Easter

    Kind regards, Ulla Mullis, Denmark

  3. Oh those bluebells.....heavenly blue, heavenly beautiful:o) Wish I could see such an English bluebell-carpet with my own 2 blue eyes one day.

    Happy what`s left of Easter, John.

    Best wishes from sunny Denmark,
    Aunt Green

  4. Great photos and it is amazing how far ahead things are this year. I take photos of my garden on the last day of each month and the comparison with last April is amazing. I think my garden is easily 3 weeks ahead on last year

  5. Do you think your Paeonia mlokosewitschii is true to species or like many has there been some cross-pollination? I see that this species is now a subspecies of P. daurica. Your thoughts would be greatly appreciated. The literature is a bit confusing.

  6. Great pictures of Narcissus poeticus
