Pulsatilla vulgaris alba

A really good white form

Pulsatilla vulgaris Rode Klokke

The SRGC forum have been discussing a Pulsatilla called Red Clock or Red Cloak recently. I think they mean this, and I think the name is Norwegian for Red Bell. Whatever, it is a quite fabulous colour.

Tulips

To finish with, a few tulips. I grow a lot in the garden; they seem to do well for me and make a lovely display at this time of year.

Great stuff Jon. Keep them coming. Time I found the time to take some pictures round the garden although I have to say the wood anemones have been very poor this year and it looks like the bluebells are also going to be very mean with flowers. Last year's dry weather no doubt having its effect.
