More Spring Flowers

The wood anemones are in bloom in three areas of Colinton Dell at the moment



Such pretty flowers! I think they're spreading too!

More tricky to find are the flowers of the larch tree. I don't think every tree flowers every year and I only discovered the flowers at all three years ago. I found this flower today

Three years ago I took photos of the flowers regularly through the year as they developed into cones, you can see these photos here.

Not sure the top ones are wood anemone - petals are different. Might be saxifrage.

Hi Simon, you might be right, i just thought it was the angle of the petals but now I look again, I'll need to check that.

Pretty spring ...

We still have not had a day above average temperature since sometime in early November! So our spring flowers are taking their time. Soon !

Oh, I just learned something new. We have both of these plants in the woods here. I didn't know what the top one was, but thought it might be related to geraniums. Lovely photos of both.

I love spring - every little thing that pops out is a new miracle. I am even seeing it in my houseplants.
