It's Bloomin' Tuesday!


There's not a whole lot of bloomin' in my gardens this week. We've had cold, sunny days, rain and frosty nights. I had to mow my lawn because the grass was a good 6 inches long.

This Clematis that climbs up my shed on a ladder is full of buds already. It will bloom again if I cut it back after the first bloom.

I love the little violets that pop up all over. They can be invasive but I just pull them out after they bloom.

My day lilies are along this property line behind the daffs. Some of them are up a good 12 inches already. They will eventually fill in this whole border.

I never planted the Siberian Squill but they pop up all over too. I'm happy with any color,any where in the spring.

I can't remember if I found and moved the grape hyacinths I had or bought new ones last year. They seem to like it where they are now. I have several blooms on my Peony Tree this year. I'm afraid I'll loose them if I don't cover them tonight. Another frost warning.

I love these little spring Anemone

I planted a few bulbs years ago and they just keep on spreading. My garden is looking quite blue this week. What color is yours?

I am always fascinated at how the same flowers bloom at different times - our forsythia, hyacinth and such bloomed between February and March! Always love seeing spring blossoms! Look forward to the party!

All the blue is so pretty! I love seeing those early signs of Spring. Thanks for the link party! I'm happy to join up again after a blog break.

Hi Jean,
Indeed, your garden is quite blue! I have the chinodoxa and scilla in my garden as well. Thanks for sponsoring Bloomin' Tuesday.
Happy Easter!

Hi, it is my first time visiting and so I linked up my perfect spring day. I hope to visit your gardens in the next few days.

It's nice to compare how far along other gardens are. You have some pretty blooms already in yours and I look forward to seeing your tree peony in bloom.

I love blue flowers. Yours are very pretty. I do not know what I can plant that would come back year after year.....Christine

What fun to see color

Suzanne said...

I wish we were having rain like you are! We didn't have one drop of moisture in the month of March and it's usually our wettest month. We are in for a long, dry summer!

Hi Jean,

Your blue blooms are just gorgeous! We have been rather dry here and I hope to give the gardens a good drink this week. Right now I have pink and purple tulips blooming. Thank you for hosting our party.
