It is Garden Blogger's Bloom Day again! On the 15th of each month, we gardeners with blogs share a few bloom photos from our gardens.
Here in the Mid-Atlantic USA (USDA zone 7) on the DC-MD border, we had had a very harsh February -- ice storms and a polar vortex -- that is keeping our bloom cycle about two weeks behind "normal." We had a tantalizing taste of a few warm days and we are back now to the typical March cold temps and blustery winds. Spring is coming, it is just taking its own sweet time....
In my garden today, I have Winter Jasmine, Heather, and Hellebores. Early bulbs are having a nice, long run due to the chilly temps -- Snowdrops, Crocus, Winter Aconite, and early-season Daffodils like 'Tete-a-Tete' and 'February Gold'.
In outside containers, I have Primroses, Geraniums, Violas, Alyssum, and Pansies.
Indoors, I have forced Forsythia branches and Tulips 'Purple Prince' (pictured above), along with Orchids, Violets, and more Primroses.

So what is blooming today in YOUR garden?
