Garden Bloggers Bloom Day - March 2014

This March the bloom business is slow to show. My little wad of Snowdrops continue to bloom.
The crocus in the lawn decided to make an appearance just day before yesterday. It is so encouraging to see these bright little spots popping up. The is still so cold that they are barely showing above ground.  
Hellebores are just budding. All of this is highly unusual here. I have looked at past years. I usually have much more blooming by now. 
I will be quite happy with what is blooming tho. The Witch Hazel has certainly been a great addition to the garden it is still blooming on. The blooms have become larger with the warmer weather.  It is odd how on this Jelena it is blooming only at the bottom of the plant. The top bloomed in the fall. I don't know what caused this. I will blame all on the weather. I will be watching to see what happens with her this year. Hopefully the weather has gotten it's extremes worked out of the system for a few years. 
What is blooming in your garden now?  Has the weather affected your garden? You can pop over to Carol's blog, May Dreams Garden to see what is happening in gardens all over the world.
