Spring Flowers

For a break from all the bad news, some plant photos (the cat moves too fast)

Alpine plants
The yellow-flowered one on the left is cowslip (Primula Veris), the big purple one in the middle is a Violetta of some sort, and I forget what the big green one at the top right is. Something later flowering, anyway.

Lone tulip
We didn't plant this tulip - it must have been a deep bulb from the previous year, but it's a cheerful red. One other is poking up as well, but only just.

Lemon Balm
The lemon balm is now a giant dome of green. It hides the bare earth well, but I'm thinking I might not have pruned it back quite enough earlier.
