On the 15th of each month, gardeners from all over the world share a few bloom photos on their blogs. I wasn't sure if I was going to be able to participate in April's bloom day but a few things are finally appearing.
Hellebores are usually the first flower to bloom in my garden. I've had these bloom as early as late January or February during a mild winter.
They are really pretty this year. Hoping the colder weather and possibly snow this week doesn't affect them. Yes....I said snow. I'm not too happy about that!
Even the crocuses were reluctant to make an early appearance. I always thought crocuses were supposed to naturalize? It seems like I have fewer every year but maybe the voles are getting them. I guess it's time to replenish them.
My daffodils started blooming just in time for bloom day. They literally opened up overnight.
There was a time when daffodils didn't do anything for me, but I have so much trouble with the critters eating my tulips I've started planting more daffodils. Now I look forward to their cheerful appearance every spring.
The Star Magnolia is just starting to bloom. I'd better enjoy the blooms while I can because it won't take the cold weather.
