Once again it's time to show what is in bloom at Bliss. Last year Carol had this idea to show what is in bloom every month in your garden around the 15th, and many bloggers from all over the world have joined in the fun that is Garden Bloggers Blooms Day. Here is my contribution for March 2008:
Violets in white, pink, burgundy, blue, purple and yellow. Yes, I love violets.
Daffodils and lots of them. They are such cheerful flowers that I just got to have them in droves in my garden.
I have quite a collection of daffodils as shown in the pic above. That's not all of them as some are not in flower yet.
My Thalia dafs (white) are about to burst into flower, can't wait for that to happen as they are so gorgeous and scented too.
And we have daisies in flower as well, the common one and the very rare variety Dolly Daisy.
The first forget-me-nots are starting to flower,
and the Arabis is showing its first blooms as well.
The yellow wallflowers are already in bloom, for some reason the purple ones are always a bit later.
The lungwort is flowering its little heart out
and so is this beautiful Hellebore Orientalis. I don't think it has ever flowered so profusely!
The Periwinkle is covered with flowers too and
what do you think of these beautiful tulips? Great, aren't they? But I'm teasing you a bit because they are
in a vase, not in my garden. We will have to wait a few more weeks before the first tulips will flower in my garden.
But outside my crocuses are flowering like there is no tomorrow and so is this gorgeous Sweet Violet (Viola odorata). Mmmm, that scent is to die for!
The first scilla flowers have opened and I noticed that my Clematis montana is covered in buds. It won't be long before it starts to flower too.
While I was walking around in my garden hunting for blooms I discovered this weed complete with bug (yes, we have those too at Bliss). I've no idea what kind of weed it is but I like the yellow flowers so it may stay until it sets seeds, then out it comes.
I was happy to see that the little anemones had joined the bloom party too.
My Berberis hedge is in flower as well with very tiny yellow blooms.
The Bergenia still hasn't fully recovered from the beating it got last month with that hard frost, but it is flowering so I'm not complaining.
And last but certainly not least my lovely grape hyacinths.
Have a great GBBD and a lovely weekend!

Never go pruning when in a foul temper, or after a row with your spouse.
