Beautiful! I have a variegated mosst called Bob hawkins but the white edges are not as striking as yours and the flowers are white, rather than pink. It will be some time before I have any alpines open...mine are still under 4 feet of snow!

I'm so happy to see spring alpines here! thank you goldenfish. We were just starting to
get spring weather and then got a late snowstorm. So it'll be a bit longer.

That is a lovely sax. I've never seen a variegated form. And the pink flower is lovely too.

Thought I'd show my variegated saxifrage called 'Bob Hawkins'. Here's a pic from last fall.

Beautiful saxifrage Goldenfish, I always enjoy your photos. As for the weather here we are having record high temperatures in the western United States. Saturday and Sunday were over 70 degrees farenheit here. The pasque flower and a small Draba are in bloom now. Nothing quite as pretty as your Saxifrage though.

Hi grampapa,
Thank you for your message!

Ally_UT,
70F is really warm for this season, isn't it? Today is 59F in here. I didn't know the pasque flower. Although I searched it, it's very cute flower! I am truly envious!
