|If it weren't for all my self-seeders , I'd still be waiting for all this to fill in. But , filling in, it is , not bad for March .|

|Panache, Lattarula, Petite Negri, Condaria, Mary Lane …my new family of figs I adopted from a neighbor at the end of last summer. That and my two other potted figs: Brown turkey and Crusader should keep us well supplied with figgie delights.|
|I've been keeping a look out for bud growth. All but one , the first one I repotted , are looking good. I think I was a bit aggressive with the root pruning on my first one.|
|Now if we could just have a nice long hot summer.|

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 .|
|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.
