Bloom Day February 2010

It's Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day Feb. 15th. You can find links to blooms around the world at Carol's Bloom Day post at her blog May Dreams Gardens.


Here is what I found at Petunia's Garden:

We've had some mild weather and blooms are running a little early. Above, the neighbor's old wild or ornamental plum tree is starting to bloom.

Forsythia.

Some snowdrops survived in the area where we had a large tree removed.

This young ornamental cherry has been blooming already. I'm glad the large trees are holding off a little longer.


Heather, and a bee!


Money plant adds some interest in the fence row this time of year. You can see a new, green start of it growing at the base of the fence post.

Welcome back! Cute blooms. I think I am skipping the meme this month, forgot to get it going today and kiddo home from school this week means no time for photos, blogging, etc. Do you think the fruit trees are on the early side? By how much, do you think? I have a daffodil, but only planted it last fall so it could be a super early type. I'm not sure how paranoid to be about this weather, you know?!

Hello there,

Those are the sort of things that I would have expected here as well. But not a sign of any of it.
Except the Honesty (now empty) seed pods. They do indeed shine in an otherwise browny green garden.
Lovely to at least see all this in your post.

Hi;
First time visitor. Found you through GBBD. Fun stuff - I'm 3 month's away from snow melt here so it's been a joy visiting gardeners who are actually out there playing in the mud. Happy Bloom Day!

Spring is really fast approaching. The flowers looks very alive and lovely. This is a really heart warming and a very light post you have here. Looking forward to another one each day. Thanks!

Spring has arrived and I hope that spring will soon enter stops in Germany, for the moment it does not look like it. By the way nice pictures:)
