And I did say that I'd post said pics if the light was good to my Sony Ericsson. And it wasn't.
So rather than put out some over/under/badly-exposed shots for you to go "huh?" over, how about if I make up for it with more pics of the accent plants that are starting to come out in the garden. Some of these were my earliest
This is a white Hepatica nobilis which first came out in this post. It's only started coming out into flower in the past couple of days and there are at least two more flower buds waiting in the wings. Just to show that everything is late this year, my 2009 pic dates back to late February and the flowers were much further along. This planting is due for a break-up fairly soon, as the seedlings are now in their second year (you can see them in last year's photo).
And only just out by a day or so is what I believe to be a Scilla (possibly siberica), although its flowers are looking a little pale so maybe it isn't what I think it is....
Last year I wasn't so sure this plant would make it - the double flowered form Hepatica transsilvanica 'Mrs Elison Spence':
This is one of my experiments at making multiple-plant groupings for a longer period of interest. This is one of the first Snowdrops (Galanthus) that has flowered for me in a pot, so I'm feeling a bit more encouraged to try different plantings. The rest of the composition looks like it will need more summer interest.
Oh, and before I forget - here's the blue Primula from the last post, but just two weeks along and its pompom is all out. Well, almost.
