Bloom Day - March 15th 2010

It's been a cold winter this year and my flowers are just now beginning to pop out. I've got a plethora of narcisus right now. Check them out:

A double. I really love this one:



Hoop petticoats:



Various narcissus:





Some big daffodils. I really don't like these as well as the wee wildflowery ones, but I bought some to try them out just to see how they do. Plus, they remind me of the silly, goofy daffodils in Alice in Wonderland and they make me smile. I do think they would look better in a more formal-like garden instead of my wildflowery-native-type garden:



Leucojum:



A windflower I rescued from the lawn before it was mowed over:



And some cardinals that have been visting my garden. They fly away if I step outside to take a photo, so these are through-the-window snapshots:





Happy bloom day everyone! It's springtime - get outside and plant some seeds! That's where I'm headed...

There's something to be said for simplicity, but I love those double blooms too.

The narcissus and daffodil are showy but I really love the little rescued wildflower! Great cardinal photos, too.

Happy bloom day to you! What fun!

Interesting that you'll be out to plant seeds. For us, it's kind of too late for that. Fall is better for planting.

Those first two daffs are super-groovy. Fragrant by chance? I try to make sure all of mine are fragrant, but I'd make an exception for those.

I like your blog name too--funny! Although it's not funny in July, I'm sure.

Thanks for the comments everyone!

Yes, the narcissus are fragrant, I love the fragrant ones. And the seeds I am planting now are mostly veggie seeds. All the flowers pretty much had to go in last fall, except for a few of the annuals. Happy bloom day! ;)
