Welcome to my GBBD post, join other gardeners around the world on gracious hostess Carol's May Dreams Gardens website to see what's blooming now. Spring seems to be arriving here, probably about on schedule. We have been having very warm temperatures though, usually it has to be raining constantly to get this warm. The best winter bloomer would have to be Helleborus niger and orientalis.
I even went overboard adding to my Hellebores yesterday, from Fred Meyer and Shorty's Nursery, some that have more upfacing flowers and frosty leaves- no name-
And blooming in my yard, the first daffodils of the season-
A Muscari, one year I had some that started blooming in fall.
A winter-blooming Heather-
A bedding Primula, oddly all the ones that have returned and are blooming now are this rich blue-
And finally, some of those Pansies I couldn't resist at the nursery, these are double and ruffly, I will put them in my baskets-
Spring is only a week away, enjoy!
