It's Bloomin' Tuesday!

I don't have anything blooming yet but at least I can see some green in the gardens. I have cleaned up about half of the garden areas. We have had lots of sunshine but the temps are still low even during the day. So here are my spots of green (or growth) this week.
This bright red growth is the yellow loosestrife just beginning to come up.
Bachelor buttons, fuzzy, bluish green leaves.
Bright green iris, standing at attention.
The lacy, yellow green feverfew.
Money plant will have flowers soon that look like white phlox.
Very invasive ground cover, sedum. Now's a great time to get rid of some.
Beautiful burgundy leaves of the yellow evening primroses. They turn this color in the fall.
A good clump of daffodils.
Leaf buds on my peony tree. It didn't bloom last year so I'm hoping for a bloom or two this year.
Tulip leaves with a hint of red.
Miniature daffodils with some nice plump buds.
I am excited to see what is really bloomin' in your garden already this spring. Just add your name and permalink to Mr Linky and add a link to this post on your blog. Happy Spring!

Jean, Don't you just love these first signs of Spring. I have a few of the same plants starting to come up -- although they are not as far along as yours. It feels good to be back to Bloomin' Tuesday after a couple of weeks off!

Happy Bloomin' Tuesday...

That's quite a bit of stuff for it to still be cold. Looks great!! I hope my money plant does well.

Your bachelor button sprouts look just like the sprouts (and even mature leaves) of my Desert Marigold. I recognized the bulb sprouts, so I'm feeling good!

I wish I could get some of that sedum. I don't call it invasive, I prefer "plentiful", just more to share with friends.

Your yellow loosetrife looks the same as mine at the moment. I can't wait until they bloom.

Don't you just love watching things pop up and start to green? It's such a highlight of my year.

It sure looks like you're going to have quite a few daffodil opposed to my one little yellow one!! Lucky you.

Thanks for sharing.
