My garden is blooming.

The flowers actually in bloom are the snowdrops. They come up first (they are there when the snowbanks melt).

The other bits of greenery between the snowdrops are crocuses. They are blooming now, but weren’t blooming when the picture was taken.

The reddish bits are the tulip leaves coming up. The heftier green at the far corner of the garden are hyacinths.

I have very early blooming varieties of all these things. My garden if finished about when other people’s tulips are blooming. But by that time I can enjoy other people’s gardens — the same way that I hope my neighbours enjoy my garden before theirs is up.
