Poking around the garden yesterday, looking for blooms, I couldn't help but notice that things are looking a little "springy." When it happens so early I try not to get too excited, anything could happen at this point.
Ha! Who am I kidding, spring...BRING IT ON!
Last January this Hamamelis x intermedia 'Early Bright' was newly purchased and already in bloom. I am thrilled it's rewarding me with blooms again this year...and it smells so good!
This Helleborus x hybridus 'Jade Tiger' was also purchased last year, in March when I visited Northwest Garden Nursery in Eugene, OR.
If you love hellebores then you no doubt know of the O'Byrnes and their wonderful nursery. Their 2015 Hellebore Open Garden and Sales this year are the weekends of February 21-22 and March 7-8, 10am – 4pm each day. It's very much worth the trip if you can swing it!
This little NOID hellebore was blooming away hidden behind several things I planted last year, not thinking about the lovely flowers I wouldn't get to see. The temporary solution = bring the flowers indoors. Now let's see if I can remember to move the plant.
I've got one, just one, bloom on my Jasminum nudiflorum. What's up with that?
Crazy early (it seems?) the Edgeworthia chrysantha 'Nanjing Gold' blooms are starting to open.
Grevillea 'Neil Bell' just keeps on going...
Ditto with the Grevillea victoriae 'Murray Queen'. Nice blurry photo eh? And those are the crispy leaves of my Musa basjoo there behind it, adding texture and depth (silk purse/sow's ear).
Mahonia x media 'Charity', for the last time...I promise!
And ditto for the Banksia ericifolia, I'm sure you're getting rather tired of it (I'm not though, obviously).
No such promises here. While the banksia bloom stays pretty much static the pair of Fascicularia pitcairnifolia blooms just keep on evolving.
Bloomday is a monthly opportunity to share what's blooming in our gardens. Visit the blog May Dreams Gardens for links to all those who are participating this month.
