Spring plants!

Corydallis.......beautiful blue flowers in spring.  


Astilbes and astrantias, although a little later in flowering, provide attractive spring foliage, esp varieties like astilbe fanal with its glorious copper red new foliage. 

Euphorbia polychroma is a lovely spring plant.....get it next to the corydallis.

Green claws, any perennials need dividing?  Or transplanting?  Everything where you would like it to be?  Mulching is worthwhile now after removal of any weeds that may be visible.  Maybe lilies to plant?
