On this second Bloom Day of 2012 I have very little to show. There is this white supermarket cyclamen that I bought in November that has more than seen me through the holidays, and the Wolf Moon. The wonderful thing about cyclamen is its long long winter bloom period.
On February 4th I attended a Garden Writers Meeting in Boston, where we not only got invigorating information and inspiration from Mary Kate Mackey, but gifts from various vendors like this container of Superbells ‘Grape Punch’ from Proven Winners. It is very healthy and floriferous. Yummy color.
I also got three little pots of this great native groundcover, tiarella ‘Octoraro’ from Plants Nouveau that is promised to cover 24 inches of ground. I have just the spot. Now all I have to do is keep these seedlings alive until they can be planted in the garden.
To see what else is blooming visit Carol, the brilliant inventor of Bloom Day, at May Dreams Gardens.
