Early Risers in the Garden

Who says we have to wait until the 20th of March for spring? Already the days are longer and the earth is beginning to respond.

For me, however, nothing illustrates new beginnings quite so well as the return of the charming yellow flowers of winter aconite (Eranthis hyemalis). Robust and feisty, they surge through the earth from mid to late January, lasting well into March (in zones 4 to 9). Like celandines (Ranunculus ficaria), marsh marigolds (Caltha palustris) and buttercups (Ranunculus repens), other members of the same family, the winter aconite glitters and shines exquisitely.
