In the March garden is a treasure trove of gems – the citrines of primrose and daffodil and the later flowering witch hazel ‘Arnold Promise’:
…the cloudy quartzes of snowdrops and a range of pinks in the rose quartz, rhodonite and rhodochrosite of hellebores and the tiny tumblestones of Cyclamen coum:
…the amethysts of crocus (Ladykiller) and iris (JS Djit), lapiz lazuli of hyacinth and the twinkling gems of pulmonaria:
…and finally the striking acid green of calcite in this hellebore:
I am rich indeed with all this treasure.
