Haven't seen any signs of the Erythroniums yet but the Trilliums are showing up now :)

Nothing is nicer than Erythroniums :) and Scoliopus are very cool!

The proof that Eranthis hyemalis can be quite weedy when it likes the place where it grows

I sowed some Eranthis last year or the year before (my solution to impatience is to not pay too much attention!).. hope I may be able to achieve weedy some day!

My goodness Wim, that's a bounty of Eranthis hyemalis, soon you'll have no grass left ;)

The last two years, no seed produced on my clump of Crocus kosaninii, yet today I find a couple young flowering seedlings of C. kosaninii about 1-2 meters away growing in the lawn; probably 3-year old self-sown plants (typically I've found first flowering on crocus happens in 3-4 years).

In bloom for nearly 2 weeks, is Colchicum doerfleri, shown are two different forms, one with more hirsute leaves and deeper pink flowers.
