Eventually the spring arrived

Suddenly the weather changed from cold and harsh, grim and gloomy into a wonderful, sunny and delightful spring day with temperatures above even 15 degrees Celsius. Today the spring arrived to Alnarp for real.

All the early spring flowers were just waiting for this holy moment and they started rapidly with no delay to emerge from bulbs and tubers. Some of them were of course already up over the ground before just to look around and they now quickly opened their perianths as fully as possibly.

Leucojum vernum prefers moist sites in semi shade

Eranthis hiemalis is showing all intimate parts they have without any trace of timidity 

Crocus tommasinianus belongs to the earliest in the genus to appear

The Hamamelis cultivars have already been flowering for some time
