Gardening Begins for 2011

I did finally get out to do some gardening this last week. And I was so excited to see that things were even starting to bloom!




Crocuses are easy multipliers.

They are the earliest bloomer.
Dutch irises are great en masse.The Pickwick crocus are big and multiply well. I like the stripes.
And then last night it snowed.
But the hyacinth...


the tete-a-tete daffodills...
and the chionodoxa will be fine.

Love crocii. Hyacinth from snow - that's a beautiful shot and I like your flowery slippers too :)

Hi sylvana,

I can't wait to see your tulips this year. I have not planted any new ones for a few years, so I probably won't have much to admire. You always have tons of lovely tulips, so I will just have to enjoy yours.

Chandramouli S, even my slipper flowers will survive the snow.

Zoey, thanks for reminding me that I have to post an update on the bulb box experiment. *spoiler* [I'm happy!]

Oh my. I woke up to snow covered blooming plants also this morning. But I guess they do recover! (This has been a not very spring like spring.)
