Double-flowered Meadowsweet, Filipendula ulmaria. This is one of the “aspirin plants” – meadowsweet flowers have a high concentration of salicylates, which means a nice cup of hot tea brewed covered will do wonders for a headache.

glorious Rhubarb
Currant “Pink Champagne”, Ribes spp., one of the earliest bushes to leaf out here.
