Hey everyone! Happy Garden Blogger’s Bloom Day!
I’m a little behind schedule today so I’m just doing a quick post to stay in the groove.
I looked back at last year’s April GBBD post and saw crocus and snowdrops.
I’m happy to report that this April 15th we’re way past crocus and snowdrops!
We have pulmonaria or “Bride and Groom” as my mom called it..
Our forsythia are planted in a space out back, between a pine tree and the neighbor’s fence. I should put some out in the sun where I can enjoy it and it will grow better.
Grape hyacinth… remind me to plant some small daffodils in this area in the fall. Wouldn’t they be pretty?
and a new pink Anemone. I hope these take off.
Buds on the Juneberry (Serviceberry) tree
This tree has been on the brink of bloom for the last ten days! Let’s go Juneberry tree…
I have a pot of daffodils, tulips and a few hyacinths on the front porch. These bulbs have been through two snowstorms and several very cold nights.. they literally frosted over and bounced back twice.
If you have a chance, check out my instagram account for pics of the freezing and defrosting process . While you’re there, follow me and I’ll follow you back! I’m starting to really have fun with instagram. I’ve been posting some seed starting photos and connecting with lots of gardeners and great websites.
Just below the bulbs are a few cute little pots of pansies. These guys are also a bit weather worn, but they’re hanging in there!
Be sure to visit May Dreams Gardens to see the other GBBD posts. I had fun looking at them this morning. April is a month when all subtle changes in temperature create a wide array of bloom stages as you travel around to different time zones and climates!
Be well, be happy,
and remember on this third anniversary of the Boston Bombing that Boston is strong!
