Another Rainy Garden Blogger Bloom Day

It is pouring out for the 4th (5th?) day in a row. But, hey, it is NOT snowing! So there is a something to be happy about. Out in the garden, my bulbs have exploded out of the ground and in bloom now are snowdrops, crocus, and dwarf iris. Near my back door the heathers and winter jasmine are daintily flowering. A cheap-o primrose from Giant supermarket has returned with at least 10 blooms on the one tiny plant (pictured here). My Tet-a-Te daffs are just now opening. My other daffs, forsythia, and hellebores are all a week or so behind. My tulip foliage is on average 3 inches high and that is a good sign. Check out what my felloe garden bloggers have in bloom at May DreamsGardens' Garde Blogger Bloom Day March 2010. So what is blooming in your garden today?

Beautiful primrose. I love the dry leaves around the delicate blooms. Such a great time of year - so full of hope and new beginnings.

Isn't it funny how sometimes the "what the heck, it's so cheap I might as well buy it" plants are the ones that turn out the best? Sounds like you've got a lot going on in your garden already. Here in CT we're limited to crocus and witch hazel at the moment...

Thank you for stopping by, Steve Aand GardenJunkie, yes, sometimes cheap is not only hardier but also beautiful!

I'm in Woodbridge VA and nothing is blooming except a couple of hellebore buds beginning to open. No daffs, no crocus, no dwarf iris...they're all extremely late this year!
