Don't be fooled. Inside this thin coating of sweetness is a fiery core of total insanity.

Garden Bloggers Bloom Day, March, 2015

With the warm, dry weather we've had this month, the garden is speeding toward spring (hard to believe it is not technically spring yet). I'm making good progress on clean-up, but with the rapid pace that things are progressing out there, because of the weather, I feel like I'm running to catch up.

The spring ephemerals and many bulbs are up and flowering, and will be starting to fade before I can draw breath.

Trillium ovatum, our PNW native, will turn pink over the next few days, as it ages

Jeffersonia diphylla


I need to buy more of these taller Primroses, the slugs like the Primula vulgaris too much, but they seem to leave these taller ones like P. veris, P. elatior and P. denticulata alone.

Primula veris

Primula elatior 'Victoriana Gold Lace Red'


Double Daffodil

Erysimum 'Winter Sorbet'

Epimedium with Hellebore out of focus behind


That's my blooms for Garden Bloggers Bloom Day! Hosted by Carol Michel of May Dreams Gardens on the 15th of every month, GBBD is a great way to keep records of what blooms when each year. You can read Carol's post here, and check out other bloggers around the world who are also showing off their flowers.
