It's Bloomin' Tuesday!

Welcome!I mowed the lawn for the first time tonight. Parts of it didn't really need it but other parts did. I does look better now.
This is the path thru the shade garden I enlarged last year. The prim roses are lining the stone path just as I'd hoped. Hopefully some other colors will bloom soon and all the plants will come back. We need rain badly, we're supposed to get some tomorrow.
The tiny blue flowers on the Brunnera, Jack Frost are opening. I love this plant but didn't know it flowered when I bought it.
The hyacinth looks pretty good this year. It usually gets snowed on and blooms funny. I enjoy it's lovely scent when it is outside. It's a little strong in the house.
Little patches of these blue and white violets have popped up all over.
They add a nice touch of color and I can always pull out the ones I don't want after they bloom.
A couple different daffodils bloomed this week. I like the bright orange center of this one
and the opposite pale color of these. I have no idea what any of their names are.
That's what's bloomin' here this week. If you'd like to show off your bloomers just add your name and permalink to Mr Linky. Please remember to add a link to this post and to sign up every week you want to participate. For more info and a choice of buttons click the button on my sidebar.
I don't know about you but I'm ready for a walk in the spring sunshine!

Bob mowed for the first time this season this past Saturday. Your blooms all look good. I like the tiny little blue flowers on the Brunnera. Your daffodils are very lovely. I, too, enjoy the smell of the hyacinths.

It's nice to see some large flowering Daffs in bloom in your garden. Mine are long since spent & gone. Your garden is really starting to pop with spring color Jean. :) Happy Bloomin' Tuesday, it's good to be back.

Hi Jean - this is my first time to link up. Beautiful Daffs. Mine are still blooming too.

So pretty! My daffodils bloom at deifferent times around the yard, even though they are the same variety and planted at the same time. So I have over a month of daffodils every year.

Those violets! I love them! They are just beautiful. Gotta find me some.

Your pictures are wonderful, as usual. Thanks for sharing.

Good morning Jean!! Hope live has settled down for you:). Love the brunnera blooms. I only had one hyacinth bloom this year, and it was a little scraggly, sweet tho, and for some reason, I can't get those dark leafed violets to do for me. Enjoy looking at yours:). Have a great day!

Beautiful plants. Especially the Brunnera. I want one .

I went out and bought one of those Jack Frost Brunneras after seeing them on people's blogs. It seems to be doing well, since it rained right after it got planted, and has been coming down off and on for the last few days. I chose one that wasn't blooming. I don't know if it has bloomed yet or not.
