Lovely to see all the colour in your gardens folks.

Fermi what a great patch of Narcissus viridiflorus , foliage of my pot full are just coming through the soil, whether I can get them to flower in this shade garden is another matter........indecision

Narcissus  obsoletus is a stunner.

Cheers Dave.

As for Erythronium americanum, it is situated in a very sunny spot that stays fairly dry in the summer.  It comes up, blooms, sets seeds if I hand-pollinate, then disappears for the rest of the year.

Thanks Claire. My plants are in a shady area beneath some shrubs. Maybe I should move them (the Erythroniums I mean).

A few flowers worth looking at in the garden as we wind down towards winter,

Fermi, your winters are probably warmer than our summers!

Nice autumn plants, I especially like that Oxalis! I have read that it is hard to flower in the garden but you seems to have no problems with it.

Lori, is the spring on time at your place or later than "normal"?

Some plants from the garden yesterday.

Cardamine heptaphylla is one of the Cardamines still in flower. An unnamed Erythronium in the wood.

 

 

Some rhodos are already finished but several are in bloom now. Here are 3 of the dozen or so in bloom yesterday.

   

 

Osmanthus X burkwoodii is a charming shrub which perfumes the garden. An unnamed Oxalis species with huge flowers.

Spring is 2 or 3 weeks late here, I'd say.  Oh well, things catch up quickly... or will when it quits snowing!  It snowed all day yesterday but melted today.

Physochlaina orientalis, from seed last year;:

Very nice, John! I do enjoy them all but that Polemonium is splendid! Does it get big?

 

I have built a new rocky place in my garden where I will try cacti. I have planted some already. They have been there for about a month and looks good so far.

The place is not finished yet.

 

For the first time in my garden: Calanthe discolor in flower! It survived last winter but that was actually no match except for the wind and rain.
