Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day, March 2015

Northeast Mississippi, US, zone 7
This past month has been rain, rain, and more rain, interrupted now and then by sleet and snow.  But the weatherman has promised sunshine for tomorrow!

Prentiss county, Mississippi, USA

Almost all the daffodils are in full bloom.  I hope that I will have a few late-blooming ones to show for April.

I don't remember the name of these beauties.  Their stems are not as strong as the others, and the rain has bent them over.

Double Daffodils

This double Daffodil is commonly called 'Butter and Eggs.'  As you can see, the buds are really green, but they bloom out a rich buttery yellow.


We call these Hellebores 'Lenten Roses.'  As the season progresses their colors will fade but they will still be beautiful.

Tree buds

I believe this tree is a Red Maple.  I really need to learn more about the trees I have here.

Spirea shrub

The Spirea is going to burst into bloom at any minute!

Happy Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day!

  1. Much of what you have is similar to what I will have sometime in late April-early May in upstate New York. Isn't it wonderful when spring comes? I hope no more snow or sleet for you. Happy GBBD!

  2. Your daffodils and hellebore flowers are pretty--I'm sure you're enjoying them after winter. I just love the photos of the budding trees--that's one of my favorite events in a garden, new buds, new promise of growth. Happy blooms to you.

  3. Happy GBBD! Your daffodils are so cheerful and bright. I'm sure they have been a beacon of light in all the rain you've had.

  4. Your daffodils are so cheery! The snow has finally melted here, and the first shoots of bulbs are poking through the soil, but no blooms yet. Hope the rain stops so you can get out and enjoy your garden!

  5. The buds on that tree are gorgeous! Have you thought about doing the following a tree meme on the 7th of each month. It might help you get to grips with your trees Lea.
    Lovely daffs and how different are the buds of Butter and Eggs. Very nice! Happy Bloom Day :)

  6. Beautiful! I can't believe the difference in our seasons.

  7. Your daffodils are wonderful! Cheery yellow is so welcome this time of year. I have been known to let a few dandelions bloom for that reason. Hellebores are such glorious winter bloomers - Love them!

  8. Love those leaf buds. Every day when I walk round the garden I see something new now. My favourite season :)

  9. Oh this is what it means to see spring in garden will wait until late April or May to see this spring.

  10. Lots blooming in your area! I actually saw the tips of some crocus starting to come up this past weekend, so won't be long now here. :)

  11. Down here the daffodils will pop won't bloom any..

  12. Lovely daffodils, and butter and eggs has been on my wish-list for a while :-) Those maple buds are really striking, please post the name of it if you ever find out what it is. Happy GBBD!

  13. Great pictures - we have lots of hellebores in out garden too.

    Cheers - Stewart M - Melbourne

  14. I am late to Bloom Day this month, but I'm glad I found your GBBD post. Lovely pictures. Don't you love it when the trees are just about to burst into leaf or bloom? It seems a magical time.


I enjoy your comments!
