Fortunately, my yard is a bit slower than last year to wake up, too. The crocus are mostly done, except this little patch shaded by a euphorbia.
|not yet fully awake this morning - must be the shade|
The large patches of daffs I showed off this time last year are still just starting to come into bloom.
The trailing Euphorbia myrsinites is just thinking it might be springtime:
In the front parking strip the crocus are finishing, the daffs are still budding, one anemone is opening, there are some random flowers on the moss phlox, and this:
Of the 10 or so squill bulbs I planted two falls ago, only one remains. But it is a cute one.
Over on the north side is the periwinkle. So much periwinkle. I planted it in two spots in my yard, before I knew better. A few years ago, I successfully dug out one 5x5 patch (formed from just three original plants) to plant strawberries. But this patch I haven't dealt with yet. It has smothered a mini azalea, invaded my window well, and started to grow up the house. But it still makes me smile when covered in flowers:
One tree is in bloom, too. My maple tree doesn't have showy, or even pretty, flowers, but they are there.
This time last year the plum tree was in full bloom; nothing yet this year. I haven't been keeping records long enough to know if my yard is "late" this year, I do know it was earlier than normal last year.
I hope you'll visit May Dreams Gardens to see more March blooms. If you found me from there, welcome! And thanks for visiting.
