Last spring was early and hot and on Bloom Day there was a lot of bloom. Things are moving slowly this Bloom Day. This is an area of my lawn reduction project. Waldsteinia has spread over the past three years and I’m underplanted with daffodils.
Waldsteinia is a beautiful plant and it is just coming into bloom. It is not any kind of strawberry plant.
These miniature daffodils are some of the daffs growing amid the barren strawberry
Some daffodils are growing in the grass. I haven’t gotten the groundcover this far.
My lawn is not fine turf. I call it a flowery mead. Right now it is blooming with blue and white violets, and of course, dandelions.
Many of the spring bloomers are small, like these Forget Me Nots.
TI can see these pale grape hyacinths from the house. The familiar blue ones are growing in the grass by the miniature daffs.
I am so glad I gave epimediums a try. They are NOT too tender for Heath.
This primrose did so well in a shady spot in back of the house I am planting more in this spot this year.
My forsythia is looking much better than usual, but that isn’t saying much.
And my orchid cactus has gone wild!
I thank Carol at May Dreams Gardens for hosting Garden Bloggers Bloom day and giving us all a chance to see what is blooming across our great land today.
You will also see what is (mostly) Wordless this Wednesday.
