Six On Saturday
Saturday, 1 May 2021

The first Saturday of a new month. Continuing to follow "The Propagator," originator of Six on Saturday with a selection of half a dozen flowers blooming at the moment in my garden.

The last narcissus are closing out the season of spring bulbs. This is the aptly named 'Polar Ice'.

'Foundling' is another, a cross of 'Irish Rose' and 'Jenny'.
Has to have N. cyclamineus somewhere in there also.

Narcissus 'Mount Hood' has substantial, pale cream flowers when first open,
tipping slightly upward and maturing to pristine white. Bred in Holland in 1930.

Japanese woodland peony, Paeonia obovata 'Alba' is earliest peony to flower
here at BelleWood Gardens. It's happy here. Must be, because is seeds about.

I shared the first flowers of Primula kisoana in last Saturday's entry.
They are now reaching their peak and I could not resist sharing again.

Jetbead, Rhodotypos scandens, is an old fashioned shrub. Likes shade, good doer,
deer ignore it. Spring's flowers are followed by jet black berries that stay through winter.
