April Blooms

Hi Everyone!
With the warm temperatures this week
plants are starting to grow and spring
blooms are beginning to unfold.
The tulips are almost ready and will most likely
be blooming in a few more days.

Since today is also Fertilizer Friday join us
with our hostess Tootsie over at “Tootsie Time
and Flaunt Those Spring Blooms.



On to what  is blooming in the garden.



More Daffodils are starting to bloom.







Daffodils_March 31



Diana Clare Pulmonaria longifolia Long Leafed Lungwort

The leaves of this pulmonaria emerge with silver specks
and turn all silver as the season advances. Zones 3 – 9.
Light shade to full shade.



Jack Frost Brunnera macrofylla Siberian Bugloss
is starting to put on a few tiny blue blooms.

Heart-shaped silver leaves, delicately veined with mint green. Sprays of bright blue Forget-me-not flowers. Zones 2 – 9.
Great for the shady beds.





Also Charisma Amaryllis decided to put on a
third set of blooms.




Finally  I would like to wish everyone a
wonderful Easter weekend.




Easter Blessings To Everyone!

Until Next Time, Lona

Great pictures. i Love daffodils. I think we lost our amaryllis during a hard freeze. Glad to see some In bloom. ... have a great Easter!!!

Catherine@AGardenerinProgress said...

All your daffodils and other flowers must be making it feel very much like Spring there. Glad you are getting some warmer weather. I feel like we are now having winter here. Highs in the 40's rain and windstorms :(

Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving a message. Not before time for the daffodils eh?

Kimberly said...

Happy Easter, Lona! Your April blooms are beautiful, cheerful and springy! Thanks for sharing them!

Erin said...

Absolutely gorgeous...the daffodils are so lady-like. Love the pink flower towards the bottom, too. You make me long for my amaryllis that just can't handle our cold winters in the PNW. Sigh.

It was a beautiful day here, lots of blooms, even had to water beccause of the drying winds. I think I might even have some sun showing on my arms. Your daffodils and other blooms look lovely.

Beautiful blooms! Daffs, pulmonaria, brunnera... I see sprouting foliage from all three in my garden, but no blooms yet. It's so nice to get a sneak peek of them in your garden. :)

Happy Easter!

Stephanie said...

Easter blessings to you and family as well! Lona, the daffodils look just like eggs, very apt for Easter ;-D

NellJean said...

Daffodils say it all, don't they?

Dear Lona, What a truly lovely array of spring flowers and so beautifully photographed too. This for me has been such a splendid start to Easter Saturday. I particularly love [envy] your Pulmonaria and Brunnera - dashes of blue look so good when teamed with all of the yellows.

A very happy and peaceful Easter to you.

Ever Green Tree said...

Splendid Little Stars said...

Happy Easter to you! What lovely blooms!
I believe I have 5 varieties of daffodils in my yard. Hyacinths are up. snowdrops, too! You've inspired me to walk around my yard and take photos.

Kate said...

I do declare... perky Daffies are the happiest flowers in the universe. Cool to see we're growing many of the same perennials, though I think you're a full month ahead of me in bloom times. Who cares? Spring has sprung! Happy Easter!

Kathleen Grace said...

Your garden gets me excited for when my garden will bloom, we are a bit behind you. Everything is so lovely. Happy Easter!

Annelie said...
