Today's tiny treasure and a bunch of gold

Anemone nemorosa. Another gorgeous tiny woodland perennial that is just beginning to flower. Three plants purchased two years ago have now spread to cover about a half metre square, they are only 15 cms tall and have the most beautiful feathery fern-like leaves that unfurl as the flowers begin to bloom.

A bunch of various daffodil varieties picked from my garden to be given to friends last night. The show this year has been spectacular and is now finishing - to be replaced by a gentle greening of the deciduous trees, frothy blossoms on the fruit trees and vigorous spring growth of perennials, roses and everything else. It is a constantly changing canvas - a joy to behold and a job forever!
