April blooms

April 16, 2009

The Iris reticulatashistrioides that were so beautiful are almost spent, and a few crocuses hang on, so most of the blooms outside now have nothing to do with me. Some previous owner sowed tiny bulbs, and they are popping up in elegant blues here and there, making me wish I’d known to plant them some friends last fall. In a few days we’ll also have 5 giant hyacinths right in front of Buddy’s gate, thanks to that unknown benefactor.

I think this is Chionodoxa, Glory of the Snow!

    What a lovely little surprise for you! Yes, it’s chionodoxa/Glory of the snow. I have some for the first time in my garden this spring. They opened their tiny blue and white blooms last Friday. Our daffodils are putting on a wonderful show! Isn’t spring wonderful?
