Also in bloom right now: forsythia, daphne odora, viburnum tinus, narcissus rupicola, cyclamen coum (still just one blossom), a couple of daffodils, sweet violets, primula, pulmonaria, rhododendron mucronulatum, petasites japonica, which I really must get into the ground one of these days, and one siberian squill.
In the woods, salmon berry, skunk cabbage and flowering cherry.
The crocus have come and gone, battered by rain from the Pineapple Express that roared through here last week.
I made up this bouquet last Monday to keep my company while I recover from foot surgery this week. Just a few sprigs of daphne is all it takes to perfume a room.
In the wings, 'Red Riding Hood' Greigii tulips 'Red Riding Hood'.
