A Spring Bulb Update

The parade of early spring flowers is continuing in my garden.  My favourite flower colour is blue, and this time of year gives me lots of it.

The miniature irises (Iris reticulata) are in full bloom now.  They are only about six inches tall.  These light blue ones are the variety "Cantab"; I don't know which varieties the others are.

Glory-of-the-snow (Chionodoxa) started blooming a little after the irises.  They make a mass of colour close to the ground, and multiply fast.

The Scilla are just starting to bloom.  They also multiply fast, and they are a beautiful true blue.

Snowdrops were the first flowers in the garden and they're still going strong.

Dutch crocuses are starting as the snow crocuses fade away.
