Easter cactus and lots of yellow
Katie's Easter Cactus flowered a week after Easter; it looks fabulous opening up during the day and closing at night.
The scent from the Wallflowers is fabulous. They are planted under the conservatory windows so the perfume wafts in when the windows are open.
Katie bought these mini tulips last year as an "end of range" so we didn't really know what they'd look like. When they came out a week or so ago they were a real surprise with their feathery edges and beautiful sunny colour.
A simple Dandelion nestled in a pot of other goodies. We have loads of them all over the garden and although they are looked on as weeds they are actually very pretty and also handy for my rabbit who adores the leaves (in small quantities).
Our Primulas have been wonderful this year. We got quite a few from a friend who gave Katie some unwanted hanging baskets with rather sad looking Primulas already planted in them. I took them all out and just left them with all their soil around them and then planted them up about a month or so ago. I'm really pleased I didn't just bin them, they have brightened up the garden big time.
Cheating abit here as the Violas are not quite all yellow. They look lovely under the trees and have self-seeded since last year so we have double the amount.
