I love that plant, colour and form are gorgeous. Sunshine here, chilly though especially as the heating boiler has broken . . . .

Thanks Carole /TT/ Yorkshire , poor you Megan I hope you soon get your heating fixed we had trouble last year and had to have all new radiators ...

It's the fan in the boiler that's past its' sell-by date, only installed in 2001, but nothing lasts forever ! We were warmer outdoors this morning, sun on our backs, than indoors.

Well, you already know that I love them! :-))))

Sandra, be patient until the autumn, and buy bulbs. They grow well from them, it's not like snowdrops.

Amy - just out of interest, I checked my files to find out when this flowered last year - mine were fully open on Feb. 14th, so again, about 2 weeks later this year!

Sorry - I wasn't trying to say anything other than agreeing that things are about two weeks late! Hope you didn't take my comment the wrong way, Amy. :-((

That is such a beautiful blue Amy.......talking of late growth.....I checked my Anemone which had been in flower from late Feb last year......only one or two leaves as yet...:o(

Unbelievable! I think I mentioned my 'February Gold' Narcissi already - they're not even fat buds. No chance of flowers for a while, yet! :-(((
