The crocus and tete a tete narcissi are for me, the first signs of spring at the plot but this year they were flattened by the beasts.  The next flower to emerge is the tulip and although a bit behind, I’ve been tracking her progress from tight bud to full-blown flower.

The star is Pink Impression.

6th April – I see colour

11th April – the difference a week makes


12th April – in a vase

What has been the first spring flower to emerge in your garden or plot?
