A Colorful Tale of a Garden in the Making

What’s Blooming


I believe these are Glory of the Snow, Chionodoxa. I planted them for the first time last fall and they are just beginning to pop up. They should naturalize over time.

The daffodils should open any minute! They are starting to fill out and form nice drifts.

Another new addition last year, scilla ‘Spring Beauty,’ a brilliant blue. The new, tight balls of blooms remind me of berries.

Most of my reticulated iris and early crocus are already done blooming, with the exception of Blue Pearl crocus. Blue Pearl is in its first year and I hope it naturalizes over the next few years to form bigger clumps.

Garden bloggers’ bloom day is hosted by Carol at May Dreams Gardens the 15th of each month. Stop by and add your blog to the list so we can see what’s springing up in your garden.

  1. The blooms are wonderful and yes that Glory of the Snow will love your garden so much it will grow and spread in no time…I love the dainty bulbs of early spring as they dot the barren landscape…Happy GBBD

  2. I think you are right and they are Glory of the Snow. I have planted them this year for the first time as well and mine have just started to flower. I am very pleased with them

  3. The blue of 'Spring Beauty' scillia is amazing! I also really like your 'Glory of the Snow'. All your bulbs are so pretty; they will look fabulous in drifts.

  4. Love the crocus and somehow I really like those not quite open yet daffodils.

  5. A bit belated, but happy GBBD! Lovely to see spring has arrived to grace you with its beauty.

  6. My daffodils have opened but they are drowning … more rain.

  7. Your garden is coming along nicely. Mine is still stuck on hold waiting for warmer weather to arrive. I love the little blue scilla in your garden- I wish now that I had planted some.

Thank you for joining me in the making of my garden!
