Welcome sunshine over the last few days has made a difference in my garden the Narcissuss is under cover as many of my early bulbs are
Narcissus cyclamineus these are inside troughs

Apologies for all the labels but its the only way I know were things are as many are out of sight six months of the year.

Hellebore a nice semi double white it is named,would need to look at the label if anyone wants to know what it is.

As Above

Next two pictures are Galanthus ’Diggory One of the few i can recognize from a yard away

Different, should have had a female name.But refuse to make any suggestions as it may incriminate me

These are darker than the picture shows ,have lightened them so the detail can be seen

I don’t rate them that much just different the dark bit behind is the Magnolia trunk. Not an Elephant

Snowdrop Atkinsii this is a large one,the smaller ones are double Nivalis.

Back inside this is the trough that you saw in Autumn with the Autumn flowering snowdrops,now just there leaves to be seen ,now replaced with Cyclamen and Narcissus,still to come in there are spring flowering Colchicum and Fritilaria.this one is now on its fifth year and no re potting ,just top dress and fertilizer when dormant.

And last but not least a pretty pan of Polyanthus

Your garden is full of colour as always. I like Diggory. Its very different from nivalis type. Too bad you don't live closer, we could have had some of those pots on display on Saturday. I'm surprised there are not any shows closer to you than Exeter or Newport.

Thanks for for sharing your lovely photos.
