It's Bloomin' Tuesday!

Nothing much new bloomin' in Western New York this week although the grass is green and the trees are just beginning to get their leaves. We have had continual spring showers and when driving around there is lots of standing water. Once the sun comes out, I know it will sometime, it will be time to mow the grass!
I picked a few regular size and mini daffodil for the Easter dinner table.I added some pretty blue Siberian Squill to the mini daffs. I never planted them that I remember but they sprout up all over.
The Helleborus, Royal Heritage Strain in the shade garden are looking well. The tag shows white and purple flowers and maybe they will turn later but I love all the shades of color in these blooms.
The Brunnera, Jack Frost is busting thru the leaves and mulch and
Solomon's Seal is poking it's head up.
The peony tree has sprouted leaves and buds in just a couple days. Imagine what it will do with some sunshine.
The temps are warming and the rain will be falling most of the week so I think I'll just sit back and watch everything grow. If you'd like to show us what's bloomin' where you are planted, grab a button (more options by clicking the button on the sidebar), add your name and permalink to Mr Linky and give this post a 'shout out' on your blog.

Now sit back and enjoy the spring tour!

Not joining in today although I am posting on the blog it is not appropriate, but decided to call by to enjoy your post anyway.

Dirt Princess said...

Well you have quite a bit popping up. Today is the first time I am joining BT! Glad to be here :-)

Rosemary said...

Daffs are flowering in my very wet garden too ........

Diana LaMarre said...

Now you have me wondering if the new peony I planted last year has survived the winter. I must remember to check this out as soon as it stops raining.

I still have zilch to post--although I did do a centerpiece on my leopard tablescape using dead sedumn Autumn Joy--does that count? LOL.

Hope to be able to post soon.

Diana LaMarre said...

I went outside and found a bloom. I am so excited to have something to post!

Jean something funky is going on. I did not link that first post #9to todays link. That post is from last week. Do you have any idea? Someone hacked into my email yesterday but how could that have anything to do with blogger. Maybe not. It's wierd.I'll be back to comment on your post.
