    Lovely patch of Katherine Hogkin! My few plants pale in comparison. I've got Chionodoxa forbesii 'Pink Giant', but I like your blue even better. It looks more like a Scilla than a hyacinth. Spring is passing fast down my way :(

    Beautiful plants!

    If they are growing outside in Quebec, I can have them survive here in the UK?

    I want that Iris!!

    Wow, spring is still springing in your area! Amazing. Here it is getting to be on its last legs. Soon the roses will all flower and then the hydrangeas...until the summer monsoon washes everything into the ground.:sob:

    Love that crimson Corydalis - hot!

    Thank you!!!

    Dido, yes, Early bird is very interting Peony. It is one of the earliest hybrid if not the earliest to bloom here. It looks somewhat like Paeonia tenuifolia on steroids.


    La suite.... A few more pics:

    Magnolia x loebneri Leonard Messel (not a very good flowering this year but the buds are far more resistant to hard frosts than those of its cousin, M. x loebneri Merill.)

    Anemone nemorosa albaplena, a very nice one. One of my favorite Anemone. Not fully open
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Magnolia (M. kobus??).
    [​IMG]

    Stylophorum diphyllum. Easy to grow (to easy... It self seeds readily). Usefull in part shade.
    [​IMG]

    Ranunculus ficaria Plena. For damp soil. The foliage die in summer.
    [​IMG]

    Helleborus Cherry Blossom. One of the 3 plants I grow. The plants are from seed, so they are not identical
    [​IMG]

    Helleborus Ashwook Double White. Slow grower but such a nice bloom! From tissue culture
    [​IMG]

    Corydalis nobilis. A quite large corydalis.
    [​IMG]

    Rhododendron April Rose. Difficult for me. The plant needs a sharp drainage. I grow on plant for many years on a shallow and well drained soil. The plant died soon after I moved it to another spot, with the other rhodies. I bought another one but it is not very nice this year.
    [​IMG]

    Rhododendron mucronulatum album (started from seeds 10 years ago. Easy to grow but the blooms are often killed by frost)

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Pulmonaria Blue Ensign (similar to P. angustifolia Hort)
    [​IMG]

    Matteucia struthiopteris. Native and edible fern.
