Today at the FlowerParade, one of my favorite spring bloomers: the Kievseitje.
Kievets are spheres, which love a moist soil.
You can see them in the wild in the Netherlands, but stay off, because they are protected!

Fortunately, you can buy the balls from many growers, and I did so years ago.
With any luck, the ball sows itself out.
The name comes from the speckled flower, a Kievseitje, the bird is also speckled.

There are white and purple variants.
Every year when the Kievseitje shows itself in our garden, my heart makes a jump፦)
