Left: A lovely little alpine / seaside plant - Armeria maritime / sea thrift. It flowers for quite a long period, throughout summer. I see this plant along our cliff walks in Ireland.
I have the Armeria in a dry, sunny area of the garden (not that I have many dry areas!) and it multiples like crazy. A great little plant!

Below: The same plant on a bad hair day, caused by the 2010 Dec "big freeze" and not sure the plant will ever recover as I've had to cut out dead wood.
|Honesty has really put on a good flower show in April/May!|
|Above: Muscari bulbs just keep coming up. They seem to flower for long periods.|
Below: Bluebells in flower pictured with Honesty.
|Some sort of miniature ornamental Cherry tree (planted by previous house owners); I have no idea how to care for it but I enjoy its flowers!|
