Having said in yesterday's blog entry that eight kinds of flower were in bloom in our patch of garden, I went out this morning, recounted them............and I was wrong! There are in fact NINE sorts of flower in bloom. I had missed the above perrywinkle!
Above is a tiny daff, which is showing colour.
Above and below are crocii.
Above and below are two hellebore. These flowers invariably hang their heads in a shy manner, and to get the full effect of them, you have to take them by the neck (gently!!!) and turn them face up - a very two handed job of photography.
