Nice one Thomas.

Thank you, David...

 I was very surprised to see Callianthemum farreri again. There were only two small leaves last year and I thought I was going to lose it.

Also Androsace ciliata brings some color to this evening over there...

Everyone here... stay healthy

Magnolias are in full flower, but the weather forecast is night frosts for the
coming nights.

Wonderful plants again to see in the pictures. :)

Just a couple more photos from yesterday's sunny morning:
Daphne mezereum.

It has been flowering here also all March. :) It is a wonder how it can cope with many cold nights, and still continue to flower.
Another flower which seems to be hardier than I thought, is C.coum. Last week one night I forgot to put a cover over it for the night, and it was -6C, but it was fine, and continued to flower like there was no cold nights.
Last night was also -6 and this night may be even colder. During the day it was barely above zero.
Still, all plants seemed to be fine.
I'm happy that Crocus herbertii has started to increase. Or at least this plant was bought with that name.
Last week one day was very sunny and +7, Crocus tommasinianus 'Roseus' opened it's flowers all the way.
Picture of snowdrops from that same day, bigger 'Atkinsii' and smaller 'Washfield Warham'.
Hepatica nobilis is close to starting to flower, this one grows in a very warm bank in the edge of the garden.
