Just like my snowdrops, I'm a bit tardy with this month's Garden Bloggers Bloom Day, but here is what is blooming for me today:
Winter jasmine (pictured here)
Hyacinth (pictured below)
Violets (pictured below)
I'm keeping tabs on my crop of crocus, 'February Gold' Daffodils, and Iris reticulata -- all teasing me mercilessly everytime I venture outside. "Are they open yet?" I plead. "No," they say, "Let us sleep in a bit more, it is so cozy down inside this mulched soil and so chilly out there." I can hardly blame them.
