Mar 2014 Bloom Day title

Spring is here & our gardens are getting some much needed color thanks mostly to bulbs in bloom.


March 2014 Bloom Day shade garden
I love hellebore, but mine always look weathered. They look nothing like the bright, perky ones I see at the nursery. The purple ones appear rather hum-drum in our shade garden. They’re nice for a little color, but they don’t do anything to brighten the area. The white ones, though, add the much needed pop of color.

Left: The heather is showing off great spring color near the front pond. Right: To celebrate St. Patrick’s Day, I bought a shamrock.



March 2014 Bloom Day back yard
Left: Pink Dawn Viburnum. This poor plant. It has had a few blooms off and on for the last couple months, but the flowers have looked horrible. This is the first “pretty” one I’ve seen. Right: The Vinca minor is just starting to bloom.

Top Left: English Daisy. Top Right: The crocus were first to pop through & show off their color. Bottom: The small daffodils started blooming not long after the crocus.


Our flowerbeds don’t have much winter interest, so I’m definitely ready for spring to get here & add color to the landscape.
