Carmine spring watch 2011: scilla

Today, Carmine Superiore is billowing with intoxicatingly warm air, direct, I assume, from the Mediterranean. It feels like an English summer out there. Can't last, but I think the worst of winter is over.




This week, the first scilla have come into bud, and F.'s orchard is sprinkled with primulas and snowdrops.

After another blizzard yesterday, this is such a picture of the hope of spring! Thank you!

I love bulbs that bloom while it is still winter. I don't have any, so I'll enjoy yours.

Just a little glimpse of spring...and it's so grey and miserable here...lucky you ;-)xo
