GBBD – March 2010


I have decided to re-christen this month’s Garden Bloggers Bloom Day as Garden Bloggers Bud Day.  Apart from the Crocus, Snowdrops and Irises there is not much in flower in the garden but there is certainly alot on the  verge of breaking into flower. I am really anticipating the Hellebores  opening, I have a yellow one in flower but now some of the more run of the mill ones are about the burst forth which is always a delight.

Still there is no sign of the Daffodils which were adorning the garden this time last year.  However, I did discover these Daffodil buds which hopefully will be opening in the next few days if the weather holds.

The Camellias are also getting ready to burst open with their volumptious flowers. This time last year there was far more in flower in the garden and also more leaves showing.  Hopefully it won’t be too long before the garden comes alive.

  1. Happy Bloom Day, Helen! Yep, lots of buds here too. My hellebores are still holding on too. I just love the crocuses just now, planting them in my lawn was one of my better ideas😀

  2. aloha,

    you have alot of beautiful blooms coming from your garden today and it looks like alot of sweet smelling blooms also…thanks for sharing….i love the crocus, it does look like a good year for your crocuses

  3. Buds are good! It’s a slow spring across the pond, over the mountains to the middle south! We are still in sweaters and scarves and this AM I had on gloves and a hat. I am ready for sunshine…. gail Been meaning to tell you how much I like the header photo!

  4. I love the “new name” It is especially fitting for my Northern Illinois garden. All of the flowers are so far behind. We had a cold winter with lots of snow. My daffodils and crocus are all in bud. Spring will be here soon…but I just am hearing the weather…snow for Sat. night. Oh, bother!

  5. Buds count as much as flowers in our book, Helen, and yours are perfect. March is about anticipation, and buds are the most promising things possible. Once a flower opens, it’s all downhill from there.🙂
