|Crocus vernus 'Flower Record'|
The dark purple color makes a nice contrast with the evergreen foliage of this yellow Hinoki False Cypress which is growing across the way.

This yellow Crocus is also going strong now. I love the searing color of this one - it almost burns my eyes with its brightness after the bleakness of winter.

The snowdrops are already fading now. Most have gone to seed, and only a few flowers remain:
|Galanthus elwesii (Giant Snowdrop) with Bergenia|
And possibly my favorite of the early bulbs, these gorgeous clear blue Reticulated Irises:
|Iris reticulata 'Clairette'|
A wide view of the Peony Bed. Little patches of iris and crocus are in bloom, and as you can see the tree peonies are already starting to leaf out!
