The weather has been lovely recently and the Spring flowers are blooming beautifully. Here are some photos from North Merchiston Cemetery.
A few days ago, Simon from Careering through Nature had posted some lovely photos of Glory of the Snows, and I commented that I didn't think I knew this flower. Then yesterday in the cemetery I found a lovely clump of it:
So thanks to Simon for posting about it, otherwise I wouldn't have known what it was!
Very close to that patch of Glory of the Snows there are these beautiful hyacinths
The pussy willow tree near the perimeter wall of the cemetery is beautiful just now
and meanwhile lesser celandines are carpeting part of the nearby Dalry Cemetery
Your early spring flowers are all so special and Glory of the Snows is the most perfectly wonderfully flower name ever. I really loved the butterfly and birds and more wonderful flowers in your post just below this one also! A toast to Spring on this first day of it. May yours continue to be as lovely as it started.
I adore celandines - until buttercups, their more exhuberant cousins, come out.
Hyacinths blooming here as well ... Our annual Tulip Festival for April appears to be about on schedule.. but the flowers might be a bit late and the participation will be limited too ...
Always lovely to see Spring blooms :)
All the best Jan
