Here's my contribution to Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day. (Head on over to May Dreams to see all the other contributions.) As you can see, our early flowers are pretty subtle. Mostly, they are the little bulbs, and a couple of rock garden plants. There's not too much happening here yet, but I'm glad to report that the lawn is greening up.
Puschkinia libanotica or striped squill
Pasque flower - just beginning to open - love those neat furry buds
I'm a keen gardener and garden writer and photographer, living on a country property of 10 acres near Hamilton, Ont.
I love ornamental grasses and easy-care, contemporary garden styles. In my garden I try to work with nature, instead of fighting it.
