5 flowers that say welcome spring

Now that spring has finally arrived, I'm hoping to see some of the season's first bulbs peeking through the soil. And in anticipation of that event (hopefully!) happening soon, I've come up with this list of beautiful blooms I'd love to have in my garden. Number 1 is this stunning Amber Gem hellebore, available from  Garden Import. This double-flowered apricot beauty will have people stopping in their tracks.

Number 2 is these pretty double yellow daffodil from Breck's Bulbs, called Spring Cheer. Its creamy yellow colour is heavenly. I imagine them arranged in one of my vintage McCoy vases to maxium effect.

The sort-of ombre colouration and fringed edges draw me right in.

It also self seeds, so you'll have them in a dazzling array for years to come.

They're tiny, and naturalize quickly. I also love that they come in varying shades of purple, plus white and pink, and when they're planted en masse they form what looks like a carpet across the yard. Honestly, the spring thaw can't come soon enough for me. What spring blooms are you looking forward to? Tweet me @suzannemoutis and let me know!
