    Here's my little Brilliantissimum and my little mate enjoying it. I planted this in memory of my mother, simply because it has mum in the name.

    Nothing better to honour the memory of your mum N.

    Late here as well D, mine is just coming out as well. I'd love to take a picture but I fed the lawn the other day and it hasn't rained to wash it in yet, best laid plans and all that, lol.

    The latest year for leafing out ever where I am N. But being late means the frosts won't hit the new soft leaves.

    Just got back from out walk amongst the bluebells and opened this message. What a coincidence. Your Brilliantissimum is 'perfect'. If it were me, I would never want to change it in that position N. Not even any bigger!!
    Below is our walk a few minutes ago.

    I also took a few pictures of Brilliantissimum, here not quite so far along. I laboured getting the colors right on the full picture, and managed to get it only by fading out the deep green bay tree behind it. Too bad! That's Jordan peeking in from the right.

    On the subject of bluebells, yesterday saw some white ones mixed in on a bank. Or at least they look like that too me. Does anyone know if these are a different flower, or a mutation?

    Can't answer the question but I have a few white ones as well, or at least I did last year, not sure where they came from as they just appeared on their own, I assumed my mother planted them but I don't know.
