March flowers

It must be spring... I'm joining in with Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day again!



Last month there were one or two but as I remember it we'd barely recovered from the snow... but give it four weeks and a little sunshine, and just look what we've got. Time to get planting!

PS Sorry, that's not Narcissus 'Jack Snipe' at all - it's 'February Gold'. There are some 'Jack Snipe' somewhere but haven't found them yet. I need a map of my garden...

Jack Snipe! I must get some!

I love the way the garden's just been bursting into life the past couple of weeks. And the birdsong this evening! I've got the window wide open at the moment listening to it all :)

Aren't gardens miracles? A little sun, a little warmth, a little water, and so many dreams.

I enjoyed the slideshow. Must attempt one sometime.
Some lovely March blooms :)

thank you to all - and a happy Bloom Day to you too!

I think we are all appreciating the spring particularly keenly this year :D

What a lovely slideshow! I've been looking at your idents - reminds me of my days on the NCH at Houghall College!

Superlative pictures - a real spring inspiration.

All the cyclamineus daffodils are a joy, don't you think?

Your Scilla mischtschenkoana looks rather different from Identity parade answers posted today. Just wondered. . .

The Constant Gardener said...

oh bloomin' 'eck Nige, you don't let a girl get away with a thing, do you.

I don't know which one's a scilla and which one's a chionodoxa. There, I said it. I did think this one was a scilla because it was flowering now rather than in January - but if you're going to tell me it's not and it's a chionodoxa instead then I'll happily believe you.

If you can not only enlighten me but also give me a fail-safe way of telling the difference I shall be forever grateful!!
