Gardener's bloom Day for March ...

 The rain rain was light enough that I made it out, finally to take a look at what was  blooming  or almost blooming today.
My favorite is the Santa Rosa plum tree , it's branches almost the width of the back garden. I think another good plum year !

Kerria japanica is now a good sized shrub .

Amemone blanda is starting to spread around nicely .

Potted Saxifraga 

I've no idea? I only bought this ground cover last year , can not remember what it is !

The first Mascari ' Valerie Finnis' to show up 

A nice fat clump of Pulmonaria 'Diane Clare'

I'm always surprised when the Mukdenia arrives . Soon the Syneilesis , just now appearing in the background , will take over this patch.

I'm very pleased to see many clumps of Tulip Sylvestris , not blooming yet . but soon. These are new bulbs for me , I'm hoping they are good naturalizers . They are a little taller then some of the other species Tulips I've planted .

Mascari 'golden fragrance 

The first blooms of Pulsatilla vulgans .

The Celandine poppy's are nearly blooming .

And lastly, the Euphorbias  are making a comeback , I had a massive cull a few years ago . I missed them , so I've been leaving a few to grow back.
Happy bloom day ! There are many more blooms , so visit Carol.


  1. Enjoying things I can not grow where I live, and what a lovely blooming plum. Happy GBBD from upstate New York.

  2. Yours is a bloomin' paradise. My muscari 'Golden Fragrance' has been puny in the past...could this be the year?

    1. Ricki, To be honest …my 'Golden Fragrace' is a bit puny , as well. I must have caught it on a good day !

  3. So many things I want in my own garden! Valerie Finnis, the golden Muscari, Pulsatilla, Anemone... the purple groundcover looks like Polygala chamaebuxus... I want that, too!

    1. Thanks Amy for that ID, I threw away most of my plant tags .
