Narcissus bulbocodium conspicuus

You must all know that the abutilon is blooming this Bloom Day, as it always is.  The only other blooms I have are  Narcissus bulbocodium conspicuus, and Baby Moon miniature daffodils from Brent and Becky’s bulbs.

I brought the more floriferous pot to church on Sunday and left them there in the hopes that there would still be a good amount of bloom for next Sunday. It is wonderful to have such a sign of spring to share with the congregation.  The Baby Moon daffs are just starting to bloom, but even all the tall grassy foliage is encouraging.

The forced tulips and the grape hyacinths have gone by, but one of my two amaryllis has a bud that is finally swelling, and I have hopes that the other will soon give signs that a bud is forming.

I thank Carol of May Dreams Gardens for dreaming up Bloom Day. Go visit and see how flowers are beginning to creep across our national landscape.

    These are lovely, Pat, and I’m sure the congregation appreciated them. I see in the second photo that you still have snow on the ground–I hope it all melts soon!

    Thank goodness there are forced bulbs. These look great. Ilike the foliage on the second bunch. It appears to have a ragged edge on the leaves. Interesting. Happy GBBD.

    How sweet of you to share you beautiful blooms with your church family…I should take note.

    Rose and Darla- It is wonderful to bring potted, or bouquets of fresh flowers to church.
    Lisa – all the foliage is quite smooth – the effect is just my little camera not always giving good focus.

    Interesting – those Baby Moons look very much like ‘Sweeties’. At least that’s what we call tthem down here, and they’re very fragrant too.

    I enjoy seeing the indoor bulbs folks have, but don’t really have room for them with all the plants I overwinter to take back outside in the spring.

    Thanks for your comment on my bloom day post. Yes, the snow did some protecting. My next post is probably going to be about the lisianthus plants that survived the winter under the leaves and snow. It’s treated as an annual in Nebraska. I am so tickled! I left some leaves on them. I hope they do well.
