This March I don't have as many blooms to show as usual. What is usual are the blooms I do have. The early blooms of spring. I picked a bowl of hellebore blooms when we had company coming over. Our company was not able to get out into the garden so I wanted to show them the flowers. When I was picking them I found one windflower (Anemone Blanda) abloom. It is the only one we have had as yet. This colder than normal March is keeping the flowers at bay.
The sun did come out yesterday and make some of the daffodils and crocus open.
The hyacinths that have been in the garden the longest have opened. The rest are sitting there just peeking out of the ground waiting for warmer weather.
This is my most prolific crocus. A good thing I like it so well. It is pretty sitting there open to the sun.
Like the flowers I seem to be awaiting the warmer weather to do much in the garden. As my Dearly Beloved has told me time and again...It is only March. Yet I feel this urgency to get out and do something what with the birds beginning to sing.
For more blooms pop over to Carol's May Dreams Garden. You will find blooms from all over the world.
Happy Garden Bloggers Bloom Day! What is blooming in your garden?
OH thank you for sharing those beauties. No blooms here yet - snowed this morning.ReplyDelete
Oh my Lady, I hope you get some nice spring weather soon. Today was the prettiest day we have had yet this late winter. Glad you could stop by.Delete
A few snowdrops and one Hellebore bud here, so no GBBD post for me. I love your Hellebore flowers in the bowl. It is really the only way to see them.ReplyDelete
Yes, I love to float those hellebores. The easiest way to appreciate them. The bees were appreciating them today too.Delete
Of course Lisa, you want to go out and to garden. As you say - it's only March! Nice crocus and beautiful bouquet of hellebore.ReplyDelete
Thank you Nadezda.Delete
The crocus are so pretty. I need to plant more of those this fall. I bet your Spring will be here before you know it.ReplyDelete
Looking forward to it Philliip.Delete
Where did all those flowers come from? I thought for sure you were still just shrugging off the snow and wishing it would warm up.
It sure looks great though. I can't wait until things warm up again here, we just can't seem to get rid of these stupid snowstorms!
I feel for you being in the snow belt. It really was a beautiful day here today. We will pay for it with colder and rainy weather the next few days. It was worth it to me. Happy GBBD.Delete
It's definitely looking like spring in your garden! So many pretty blooms even if there are fewer than last year.ReplyDelete
You are right. At this time of year I want them alllll.Delete
Lovely to see the daffodils! I think it's going to be awhile before any of mine bloom. The purple striped crocuses are my favorite, too. It does seem like spring blooms are late this year, and I haven't had much ambition to get outside either. It's going to be a busy April!ReplyDelete
I haven’t been out like usual. Too darned cold. The wind is awful. Amazing that anything is up yet. We have had a few beautiful days like yesterday. I got as much done as I could due to knowing the weather was to turn ugly again today. Happy GBBD.Delete
Your spring blooms are lovely and I especially love the assortment of Hellebores. Our Hellebores are blooming, but the Daffodils, Crocus and Hyacinths have a way to go. Think Spring!ReplyDelete
I think Spring is lost Lee.Delete
You've got way more going on than I do. I'm jealous.ReplyDelete
Don't be jealous Jason. You will soon have all of those pots of tulips abloom and I will be drooling over those photos.Delete
Sweet little flowers. The Hellebores are so nicely arranged in that pretty black bowl, and the dark bowl sets them off. Happy Bloom Day!ReplyDelete
Happy Bloom day to you too!Delete
Lovely Spring displays Lisa. I love the hellebore blooms floating in the bowl and the sweet little windflower.ReplyDelete
We have come back to snow. It seems a long Winter at the moment.
Come on Spring, where are you :)
Darn the luck. Too bad you couldn't bring a little warmer weather back with you. It surely won't be as long as it has been and we can get out in the garden. I do believe Spring has lost it's way this year.Delete
Ha! Wouldn't that be nice, bring the weather back with you.Delete
So lovely to see and wonderful floral macro shots! ~ Spring does exist!ReplyDelete
Not here yet, though ~

I like the way you displayed the hellebores! March is an odd month here. I want to enjoy spring, but winter and summer keep pushing into my consciousness. Definitely spring now, but with frosty holdovers from winter, and always a fear that dreaded summer heat may come early. If only prolonged cold would mean delayed heat! Not so,unfortunately.ReplyDelete
Great shot of the crocus. Yes, it's only March, but I feel way behind this year. Still too cold to draw me out for long in the garden.ReplyDelete
Crocuses take me back to my childhood in the U.K.! I don't think they would grow where I live in California though! Likewise those lovely tender looking hellebore. I keep meaning to look into hellebores - maybe there is a little niche where I could surprise people with a few! Among all my CA natives!ReplyDelete
Lovely splashes of Spring colour, Lisa - loving your crocus especially. You'll remember I'm a fan there. Yours looks like one of my favs - Pickwick :-)ReplyDelete
Spring will prevail over winter soon I bet! I love the crocus, a genus on the long list of plants that don't like coastal Southern California.ReplyDelete
