    I do like Walrus and Jaquenetta, oh and Blewbury Tart

  2. Chloris says:

    Gorgeous! What a thrill when they all come into bloom.

    • Cathy says:

      Oh indeed, but we need some milder days for them to open fully – the ones that are open are almost all new ones and in the greenhouse

  3. readerbuzz says:

    All new-to-me. All lovely.

    Here’s my Wordless Wednesday!

  4. Cathy says:

    They are all lovely Cathy!

  5. all so beautiful….quite a collection!

  6. So pretty. I miss seeing flowers. And my garden. It’s somewhere under snow right now…

    • Cathy says:

      Yes Jennifer, although the snow is pretty at first I would miss my garden too if it was hidden for weeks on end – or if I couldn’t get to the bottom of the garden because the snow was too deep! Thankfully we haven’t had that in the UK for a long time. Hope you get yours back soon

    I love snowdrops and I am so sad that I didn’t put any in last year. I will not be making that mistake again! I have one lone Iris at the minute, however it did cheer me up this morning, all by itself! Happy gardening, Laura x

    • Cathy says:

      Do your snowdrops come up year after year when you have them? They do in the UK and will readily naturalise. Good that you at least ONE iris to console you 🙂

  8. Such an amazing bit of wonderful to begin Wednesday…I grow more anxious for spring each day.

    • Cathy says:

      The signs of spring have been with us all winter one way or another Charlie, or at least that’s how I see it – whether a leaf, a bud, a stray flower, a hint of warmth – and each one has been relished

  9. Cathy says:

    They really are ‘preciouses’ aren’t they? Nothing (to me anyway) more heart-warming.

  10. Anna says:

    No words needed Cathy – little lovelies all of them 🙂

  11. bittster says:

    They look absolutely wonderful, such a nice dose of spring and I hope you do manage to get pictures when they’re completely open! I’m also looking forward to seeing your ‘regulars’ 🙂

    I love Hippolyta! It makes me think of an exotic creature in flight. I haven’t seen anything like the obsession with snowdrops in my own local gardening community but I can imagine I’d fall right into place if I lived in a climate like yours.

    • Cathy says:

      It creeps up gradually towards the end of the year and then tails off after about March – it’s quite a strange phenomenon…..:)
