Friday Spring Blooms


It has been quite a while since I have had some flowers blooming in my garden to share for Fertilizer Friday with Tootsie at  “Tootsie Time”.

With a few warm days and sunshine the garden beds are coming alive with new Spring blooms and I am a happy gardener.
So I am going to Flaunt a few of the flowers that are now in bloom.

 Hyacinth2_Purple Hyacinths of purple…..


Hyacinth_Blue and of blue.









Pink striped Squill or Scillia with Turkestanica tulips closed up on this wet morning.



                                         Blue striped Squill.

  or yellow striped

  and even some pretty peach striped ones.


Pulmonaria Diana Clare has her first bloom open for Spring.


Brunnera Looking Glass is throwing on blooms before its leaves are even grown.


The white primrose has more blooms now.


The purple Pasque Anemone was hiding her blooms also against the April showers.


The white daffodils look a little sad.


But the new Trumpet Daffodils in the woodland bed look cheerful amongst the Iris, Tulips and Lilies that are growing very well now.
No tulips are open yet but maybe in a few days I will have a few open.


I love the new daffodils and cannot wait to see how they well fill out along the bed in years to come.

Flaunt your Spring blooms with us and

Happy Gardening,

Whooo hoooo! LOOK at all the treasures you have in bloom, Lona! That's just fantastic. And what's this about yellow squill? Must have. Must have. Must find out more.

Spring is slowly coming along here, and I do mean slowly, so you gave me a real boost of delight.

They are all beautiful. I can almost smell those Hyacinths. Helen

A gorgeous array of hyacinths! I can almost smell their sweet fragrance from here.

It's so good to see spring blooming somewhere. I'm heading out this weekend on a search for daffodils.

Wonderful photos!

I think pink striped squills just got on my fall to-do list, Lona! They look like delicious candy, yum.

p.s. Crazy spring weather. I don't know whether to laugh or grrrr.

It's started and it looks like you're going to have a fabulous spring show. Love, love, love those Scillias. They are new and unfamiliar plants to me ... the peachy ones are so pretty.

Today has begun as another bright sunny day ... can't get enough of them right now, so it's time to head off into the garden!

You sure do have a lot of blooms to share! I love the shot of all the daffodils blooming, so pretty. I see your Tulip turkestanica is blooming too. There has to be a shorter name for them don't you think? :) Maybe turkey tulips? :)

The photos are beautiful! You are ahead of me but this weekend should be quite a bloom opener, predicted 85 degrees on Sunday.

Adrienne in Ohio said...

Love all the spring blooms! We are still waiting for the daffodils to open up in our yard. I have seen a few around the neighborhood, so ours shouldn't be much longer.
I'm looking forward to a season of beautiful blog entries from you. You have such a gift with flower gardening!

Sandra said...

So beautiful spring pictures ! Your hyacinths are magnificent... As always your photos are just the best !

Balisha said...

Lovely...just lovely. This is what we've been waiting for. Is that a hummingbird feeder that I spot in your garden?

Janet, The Queen of Seaford said...

Wonderful collection of blooms Lona, but I can't get my mind past the purple hyacinth, what a beauty!!
Cute squills too!

Tatyana@MySecretGarden said...

Lona, how beautiful! Most of these pictures could make great cards!
I can't take nice pictures of my Brunnera - those tiny blue flowers just don't want to look sharp in the pictures!

Asha Ram said...

Purple and Blue - awesome colors!

Grace Peterson said...

Things are looking good, Lona. I've seen several blog photos of the Scilla. I might need to get me some! So delicate and sweet...

Kate/High Altitude Gardening said...

OMG I feel as if I got a whiff of Hyacinth fragrance while drooling over those gorgeous pics. You're a good month ahead of my bloom times so I guess I'll just hang out on your blog until the snow melts out here.

sweetbay said...

Wow, gorgeous photos of your spring beauties!!

Msrobin said...

Your squill look just like hyacinths! Isn't it wonderful to have blooms once more?

Sissy said...

on a tour of your garden! I have always wished for primrose and finally purchased some from Bluestone, they should arrive this spring.
I discovered I was not yet a follower of your gorgeous blog, but I am now your newest follower!
