Yesterday the sun shone and the first tulips of 2013 opened! I am so happy!
Today is not sunny, this morning was grey and this afternoon there is steady gentle rain (good for the garden unlike the heavy rain and horizontal winds at the weekend) so the tulips aren’t open but Hyacinth Miss Saigon is opening more each day.
Thank you all for your response to my appeal for a plant ID. Here is an image of the foliage so that even though the stems didn’t exude an orange liquid it seems clear this is a Celandine, just that it has pointier petals than any of the images I saw when searching.
Talking of foliage just a quick reminder that it is GBFD on Friday 22nd please feel free to join in with anything that takes your fancy foliage-wise.
