Unknown Galanthus and the Light of Spring
Each year I excitedly anticipate the snowdrops, and these are a particular favourite given by a dear friend. They are larger than most Galanthus, and I wonder if anyone can identify them?
I love the subtle yet defined green markings.
There's something especially appealing about snowdrops in shade - they can look quite magical!
Another unidentified favourite is this little Euphorbia, which glows ruby-like next to Stonecrop.
Myriads of Myosotis have self seeded everywhere, and will soon cover the soil in a cloud of blue. In the light of Spring, even their humble leaves seem to exude an inner gloriousness.
New furry foliage of Stachys lanata 'Primrose Heron' arises in lemon-hued vibrance from last year's winter-washed remains.
Seed-heads of 'Autumn Joy' glow like embers in a shady corner.
Illuminated by the light of Spring, their stems seem to flicker with haloes of fire.
