Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day ~ April, 2011

Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day ~ April, 2011Things are just getting started at my place. With the weather finally cooperating, I donned those much missed and very tattered garden gloves to clean up the first of the beds. 1 down, 11 to go. The bulbs are beating me to it, this year. Blooming without the usual TLC from me.

Grecian Windflower (the whities are heirlooms)

Peeking out from beneath the debris were these fancy little Windflowers.

Peter Pan Heirloom Crocus

Pretty white Crocus trying hard to steal the show but ~ up until yesterday ~ she was flowering in the snow. I didn't even see her until the last of it melted.

Rip Van Winkle Heirloom Daffodil

This is my "I Wish I Had More Money Garden," hence the reason it's so sparse. :) I'm madly in love with Old House Bulbs ~ their stuff is a little spendy but well worth the expense ~ seeing as how all of these bulbs will multiply over time.

Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day ~ April, 2011


I was up early, traipsing around with the camera, shivering on a 30 degree morning, feeling extra proud of this band of bright bloomers.
We've had an unusually cold winter.
An unseasonably cold spring.
Though that seems to bother me a whole lot more than it bothers the flowers!
It's as if they have little wrist watches attached to their roots. No matter the weather, they're always happy to put on a pretty show.
Pay a visit to Carol @ May Dreams Gardens to meet more flower lovers participating in Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day.
And, I'll leave with a mystery bloomer. A mystery to me, that is. I can't remember her name. Perhaps you know?
