Garden Bloggers Bloom Day - March 2014

There is still snow on the ground here in Massachusetts. But that doesn't mean we can't have Bloom Day!

Here's the forsythia.

Uh, I guess it's not ready.

How about the Pieris?


Erm, Helleborus?

Still tightly closed buds.

I do have my FIRST OUTSIDE BLOOMS - Let's Hear it for Crocus! [and the crowd goes wild!]

[And I wonder why would I plant WHITE crocuses to bloom in the spring when I am so sick of the WHITE snow? I need COLOR!]

Fortunately I can rely on my indoor plants for color even at this time of the year.

Not shown: Clivia just finished; lots of Anthurium, but I post about them almost as obsessively as PATSP so I'll spare you.
Maybe I'll post about them next week since I do have seeds on one...

Thanks to Carol at May Dreams for this meme.


  1. Oh dear you do seem to be having endless snow over there. You brave little crocus is putting on a brave face. I hope you will have some more to join it soon.

  2. Spring edges closer and closer. Do you think that Amaryllis might be 'Minerva' -- I have a similar one coming into bloom. Beautiful violets.

  3. Yeah! Three cheers for crocus! I always forget that you still have snow over there on the east coast...

  4. Oh you still have a lot of wonderful blooms to ponder on. When it's white outside, these miniature blooms will do. They are wonderful.
