are a very welcome sight in February as they remind us that
the winter will soon end and spring is not too far away.
They are the first flowers of the year to emerge, though
often together with aconites. They can provide a glorious
display underplanted amongst dogwoods,(Cornus Westonbirt
is a favourite), kerria and Leycesteria whish provide a
winter show of coloured stems. To complete the picture plant
a background of Jasminum nudiflorum on a fence or wall as
they will flower all winter whenever a few sunny days appear.
frequently captures their beauty on canvas with two of his
acrylic paintings shown here.
