My late tulips are hot on the heels of the early ones this year.  These ones are a lovely deep red, very dramatic.

This is an echevaria, gardeningfantic.  Not sure of the species but looks like peacockii.

Anenomes ?

Anemones (Just think "No ones eneny") are very easy.  You do not have tp worry if you are planting them the right way up as they right themseves.  Try in a pot or windowbox.  Anemone blanda will spread its lovely blue and white flowers and the wood anemone, Anemone nemorosa a little later. Anemone de Caen can be planted any time the ground isn't frozen ot flooded and will flower in the spring, summer and autumn, 8 weeks after planting.  The ones in the pictures flowered last year and were left in to flower now.  Buy from a good nursery who specialise in anemones.

Yes Coronilla citrina is a little bit lighter yellow flowers but i had a cutting of another variety from a friend last year that does have flowers like that.  It will do well in the border and flower almost all year round and cuttings are very easy to take.  Does it have a heavenly scent.  In the summer the scent travels many yards.

Half and half. chicky!  Next year will be more planned as it is my Golden Jubilee year, starting in the spring with lots of golden daffodils.  I gasp with delight when i find a serendipitycolour splash.  There is a new one this year as the grape hyacinths have invaded a clump of yellow alyssum which is just about tp open its many buds while the grape hyacinths are at their zenith.  Will probably get that picture at end of week.
