Unexpected Guest and Other Nice Surprises

In one of the troughs appeared a Chionodoxa. It has two buds as yet. I have no idea how it got there, but such surprises are always gladsome, particularly after a winter like this, when many bulbs have died (frosted, rotted and so on). I have in another pot some Chionodoxa but they have had no flowers for many years already.

The Androsace carnea brigantiaca flowers have opened. Seeds from the SRGC seed exchange.

Some Tulipa dasystemon bulbs had also rotted, but the remaining three are flowering heroically:
