Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day: March 2015

This afternoon, the winds are roaring outside with gusts up to 45 mph, Douglas Fir cones are dropping on our metal pergola roof like artillery, and our lights are flickering on and off.  It seems like a strange time to talk about the blooms in my garden, but let's do this.

The neighbors' cherry tree blossoms are snowing petals in our garden.  I love those blooms!

The star magnolia continues to bloom its heart out.  I never tire of taking pictures of the blooms.

The variegated daphne is still pumping out fragrant flowers.

Can you name this beauty?  Yes, it's a dandelion.  I let them bloom for the bees in the early spring.  Barnaby keeps nibbling the withering flowers off.  We have a good system going for us.

My friend, Anna, gave me three Primula sieboidii 'Lacy Lady' at the last plant exchange.  They are a woodland treasure from Xera. Thanks, Anna!

The kraken have reemerged!  The Japanese Coltsfoot is blooming, safely tucked inside its new stock tank.  My Pirate is thrilled!  He loves this plant.
