Yesterday was warm and sunny – that’s right, I said warm and sunny! What a perfect day to celebrate Garden Bloggers Bloom Day hosted by Carol at May Dreams Garden! And I did celebrate – out in the garden, not on my computer. I did take a few photos of the early blooming spring bulbs that are emerging. To my surprise a few seemed to appear out of thin air just after I posted at Donna’s Gardens Eye View that my Chionodoxa weren’t blooming yet. There’s one in every crowd. Let me share with you as the “Winds of April” roar on – our brief respite is over. Today is better spent inside.
Early snow crocus are in full bloom.
I love the luminescence of crocus ‘Blue Pearl.’
Scilla ‘Spring Beauty’ are just beginning to bloom.
One of my favorites, reticulated Iris ‘Cantab.’ I need to plant more of these.
And here’s the stand out in the crowd, the sneaky Chionodoxa that I said wasn’t blooming yet. I have many of these scattered throughout the garden but this is the only one that I see blooming at the moment.
Hmm, I think big, fat rabbit has been dining on some of my blooms! So it begins. Even his big, fat appetite won’t be able to keep up with spring’s onset.
