I'm getting excited for things to really start firing up next month. Thanks, as always, to our hostess Carol at May Dreams Gardens.

Garden bloggers' bloom day February 2015.

I missed bloom day in January, even though I had but three things to post. It doesn't get much easier than January. Also, so many people are buried in terrible weather, why wouldn't you celebrate having blooms in your garden?

Friends is on Netflix streaming. That's why. Also, Greg pulled a quilt that his Grandmother made him out of storage and it makes our couch dangerously comfortable.

But I'm ready to rejoice: I'm finally past the season when Ross had a monkey and the weather has been so delightful lately! I'm getting off the couch, but only for a little bit. 

Arctostaphylos 'John Dourley'

Daphne odora 'Mae Jima'

Euphobia 'Blackbird'

All of my hellebores are blooming and all of them look pretty terrible. I wasn't quick enough to get Sluggo down this year.

Happy bloom day! Spring is near! Thank you to our host, Carol, over at May Dreams Gardens.

Garden bloggers' bloom day March 2014

Better late than never edition.

When we hit single digit temperatures in December my Daphne odora 'Aureomarginata' was badly burned and lost almost every single leaf. It produced buds where the leaves dropped off. I am a HUGE fan of this. More blooms? Go ahead and lose your leaves every winter, girl.

My Daphne odora 'Mae Jima' bloomed for the first time, too!

Arctostaphylos bakeri 'Louis Edmonds'

Pieris japonica

The hellebores are still going.

Euphorbia 'Blackbird'

Euphobia myrsinites

After this we really get rolling. April is one my very favorite months in the garden! Happy bloom day, a little bit late! Thanks for hosting, Carol!

The daphne is blooming!

The blooms are hot pink and they smell like heaven.

I love spring.
