Good afternoon all! Thought I'd try and post a closer view of my little #greenfly friend for today's #wildlifewednesday challenge! Considering the flower of this #hepatica is only about 1cm across I think I'd need a microscope to get much closer! Hope you can all see him now! 😀 #wildlife #bug #bugs #aphid

Good morning GTers! I'm very excited to see these tiny #hepatica flower buds appearing! It's the first time I've managed to get them to this stage and I can't wait for them to open up as they are truly beautiful! Let's hope that the sun comes out at some point today and helps them along! 😀

@godfreye - I really hope so Enid! I've tried growing Hepatica from both seed and bare roots with no success in the past three years! Decided to go with Ashwood as they had a magnificent display at Chelsea this year and won a gold medal I think! 😀
