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

Garden Blogger's Bloom Day -- April 2017

It can't possibly be the middle of April already. It's still too cold and wet, for one thing. Time is just going impossibly fast.  I have too much to do in the garden, and not enough time and good weather to accomplish anything. I feel like the proverbial one-armed paper hanger. I'm doing plenty of weed-pulling and cleaning up, but I have no before pictures to share. It just feels like taking the time to take pictures is a waste.

I can't let Garden Bloggers Bloom Day fly past unmarked, however.

 I have a few different kinds of Primulas flowering, but I've lost track of what they are.

Primula veris(?)



Dicentra 'Gold Heart'

Dicentra 'Valentine'

Ribes sanguineum


Fritillaria meleagris

Lunaria annua


Ribes speciosum

Daffodil 'British Gamble' and Muscari


And in the greenhouse...

'Red-Headed Irishman' Cactus has a crown of pink flowers

I guess there's plenty of flowering going on out there.
