Bloom Day – April 2009

It’s definitely bloomier than March was, but this chilly April is far from lush!  The good news about a cool spring is that flowers last a long time.

Just finished blooming:

Now blooming:

  • Daffodils (Rijnveld’s Early Sensation and Tete a Tete)
  • Daffapalooza

  • Hyacinth
  • Hyacinth

  • Grape hyacinth
  • Grape hyacinth

  • Marsh marigold
  • Marsh marigold loves the spring

  • Scilla
  • Front yard scilla

  • Forsythia, sort of…
  • A lonely forsythia blossom

Coming soon:

  • Forsythia
  • Serviceberry
  • Virginia bluebells
