Garden Bloggers’ Bloom Day – March 2015
I really want to get back into the habit of doing this – first I never miss one for almost five years, then I miss one because of travelling, another one because I forget, post a day late in January and then completely forget again in January…
But this time, I remembered. I may have forgotten my favourite author’s birthday in the middle of celebrating my cousin (and his band), but at least I didn’t forget about GBBD.
And spring has arrived, the balcony garden is planted, which means I have lots of flowers to show, too.
A bit in the bedroom:
I love my Abutilons, I just wish they weren’t such scale magnets…
I’m still really happy with how much this Schlumbergera has bloomed this winter.
In the living room, I have some Forsythia branches that I brought home when I pruned some shrubs for a customer – within a few days, they were in full bloom.
Crocuses at the kitchen window.
There are vegetables and flowers on my windowsills again. This was before I harvested the first babyleaf lettuce for lunch.
And lots more on the balcony.
A Pericallis that I couldn’t resist because it’s my favourite shade of blue (and really blue flowers are so rare) and my latest little treasure, a Rhodohypoxis.
A Primula – I can never remember whether they are P. veris or P. elatior… I planted a yellow one, too, but it died within two days, and I can’t tell why.
Some flowers in the pot tower – Campanula …poscharskyana, I think, forget-me-not (Myosotis sylvatica) and Anemone coronaria.
Lovely pink tulips (I could look up what species/variety, but it’s late, I’m tired, so I won’t.)
And of course, violas in every colour I could find. I even bought some from the competition, just to add more colours.
