And anemones, which in my opinion are close cousins of ranunculus (and you know how we love those!) Another one of those delicate whimsical spring flowers. They close at night or in the cold and open to light or warmth. Because they are always closed in the cooler, few people realize how charming they are!
And last, but certainly not least...the first peonies of the year! No further description needed here! Paeonia lactiflora "Sarah Bernardt"
Oh-and we'll have peony flowered tulips too (tulips that look like peonies with lots of ruffly petals-what could be better?) Happy Spring!
