Spring is on its way! Finally there are some blooms in the garden again, after the very meager winter months. With the meme „Garden Bloggers‘ Bloom Day“ (GBBD) we’re showcasing every month the blooms of our gardens. GBBD is hosted by May Dreams Gardens. Go over there and check out the other participants‘ blooming spectacles.
Abeliophyllum distichum, or Snow Forsythia, has opened its blooms. It doesn’t flower much earlier than the „common“ Forsythia, but has definitely its own charm. It emits a nice, spicy scent.
Cornus mas ‚Kazanlak‘ cheers up the gloomy days.
Euphorbia myrsinites is just starting to bloom.
The Helleborus are weedy in my garden and they don’t bloom early enough for my liking. And not all of them have such a nice, strong color (many are greenish).
I’m swooning over my Prunus mume tree at the moment. I got it as a little seedling and this year it’s blooming for the first time for real. It’s got a lovely scent and is so pretty!
Ribes malvaceum is not quite there, yet. It’s my favorite Ribes, due to the musky, fragrant foliage.
Tiny Chionodoxa luciliae (or Scilla bifolia?) creating a dot of color.
The Violets are looking nice.
That’s it for this month. What’s flowering in your garden? Join the GBBD meme and share your blooms!
