Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day: Green fuse now lit

Snow Crocus

Our Bloom's Day offering is quite meager: our first specious crocus flowers came out a couple of days ago. These lonely little flowers will soon be joined by many others. The snowdrops started blooming a week ago.

Looking forward to the official start of spring at the end of the week. Best of all, we have a few mild days ahead, and it's Canada Blooms week. My hort-buddy from Michigan is coming for a visit. Mini holiday!

  1. How lovely! I wish the crocuses were up here in Toronto, but I haven't seen any outside yet.

  2. I love the title of your post - it's so true!

  3. That first crocus is just a stunner Yvonne! I'm so excited to see another season of you gardens.

  4. You've got more in bloom than me! Lovely crocuses and Snowdrops, thanks for sharing.

  5. Still slim pickings for all of us northern gardeners; but so nice to have something actually blooming in the garden at last, isn't it?!

  6. What joy!
    Like Rosemary I haven't seen any signs of either snowdrops or crocus here - just a "few" kilometres south of you. I am starting to think that I have lost them.

    Sweet Blooms Yvonne!

  8. Thanks all for visiting. We have a lovely day here: one of the first days that actually feels like spring has arrived. Happy spring to you all!

  9. Hi Country Gardener,
    If you noticed Carol's latest post, she asked us to visit the 2 posts before and after ours, since there are too many for her to visit all of. She wanted to make sure all of them received visits and comments.

    That was a great idea. Those early spring bulbs sure are pretty! I am so excited it's almost spring!

  10. Thanks, Sue. I've done that. Appreciate your comment. Cheers/Y

  11. I just love the little Crocuses. They have a charm all their own. Mine have just started blooming too.
