Something promising...


…that was visible this morning. I do not know the names of all flowers, so if you know and want, please, let me know below this blog.
This was morning sky today, forecast says today will be 22 Celsius. In a recent decade we have noticed that springs are becoming very short and after a long continental winter we have almost immediately summer season, with all that belongs to summer.

Pulsatila vulgaris Alba and


Primulas from Brian are taking off…

…yellow azalea in the Japan corner is full of buds-will come later…

…and “something” nice..(which is Aubrieta, identified by Slad)…

Although I have many peonies, this one has probably a very good location, as it is far ahead of others.

Buddha with floral head from hyacints…

..closer look…they smell very nice, the whole Japan corner has a nice fragrance now, thanks to these sprong flowers.

My first assistant. Evidently he has stolen some cone from the decoration bowl, if I see correctly.

And another gardener, taking a rest with four bullets scattered around him.

Calthra palustris (do not know the English common name) makes a beautiful wreath at the heels of hazel.

And Noris once again.

And viola odorata – I didn´t seed it here.

And finally, a promising bud from the rose cutting delivered form far Greece.

Hi Kat ....
good blog with lots of signs of springtime.
Looks like euonymus on the left of the aubrieta.

Thank you very much, Slad, I add it into the text in brackets. Oh, yes, Bik, I hope too. Although some shift I saw only on two of them, yet. Hope they all will be able to be planted in the late summer.
Terratonie, yes, that is Euonymus, I didn´t remember the name of the small cluster of flowers which is Aubretia, as Surreylad said.
Thank you to all!

Lovely Katarina! Cute doggy too!

Lovely blog Katarina I just love Noris :-), the common name for caltha palustris is marsh marigold, yours is way ahead of mine, I do have some celendines out though that look very similar :-)

A lovely blog Katrina I love the corner showing Buddha with a Hyacinth headress.

I don't think it is Caltha as they like moisture. I recently added a photo of mine in the pond. the leaves are much bigger and less shiny. they do look like lesser celandine though. they love hedge bottoms.

you have so lovely plants there. :o)

Seaburngirl@yes, Caltha likes moisture. My garden is built two metres above the small river :-)) Or is it ranunculus carpaticus?

Noris is incredible creature. I think he will speak soon. Today I widely opened my wardrobe to take some things for the business trip. He watched me for a while, then dissappeared and again appeared with his favourite bone in mouth. He standed up, his front paws on the lowest shelf if my wardrobe and put the bone carefully among my lingeries. Then he buried it by nose.
His bone is now in my wardrobe, lol.
