Spring flowers in the botanical gardens.
Couldn’t resist popping into the Botanical gardens the other day during this fantastic weather. Was lovely to see some lovely bright colours again.
lots of lovely Crocus
The lovely yellow flowers of the Forsythia are in full bloom.
Cant forget (one of my favorites) the snowdrop!
An interesting fact is that the little snowdrop has been linked to important medicine that could help in the treatment of Alzheimer’s disease. Galantamine, a medicine used today to treat Alzheimer’s disease, occurs naturally in several members of the amaryllis family (snowdrop; narcissus; daffodil). This important medicine was first discovered in the innocent Snowdrop.
Anyone got any spring favorites?
