Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day - March 2022

The Ides of March 2022 find most of the plants in my garden behaving as Julius Caesar should have back in 44 B.C.; they are keeping their heads down. Obviously, the redbud and the fruit trees and some of the roses that would in most years be in full bloom just now are not convinced that the cold weather has ended. Indeed, we still had temperatures in the 20s over the weekend, most unusual for us in mid-March. Nevertheless, a few brave plants are providing just a bit of color to the garden. Let me show them to you.  

Pansies, of course, are never daunted by a little cold weather.

They've been in full bloom for a while now.

Likewise, the loropetalum has bloomed right on schedule.

The dianthus seems impervious to changes in the weather.

More dianthus.

Leucojum aestivum, aka summer snowflake but it blooms in winter.
 
The azalea has recently been sporting a few blossoms.

By the little pond, the yarrow is just about at the end of its bloom cycle but a few blossoms still hang on.

And by the fountain, wild Oxalis violacea, aka wood sorrel, thrives and blooms.

The Carolina jessamine blooms gloriously for several weeks. It's not at its peak bloom yet. That should come in about another week.

And in my entry hallway, there are sunflowers for Ukraine.

I hope things are blooming in your world. Thank you for visiting mine. Happy Bloom Day!

(And thank you, Carol of May Dreams Gardens for hosting us each month.)

  1. I actually forgot it was the Ides of March today. Love your flower pics! Dianthus are a favorite flower of mine. :)

  2. You have 100% more blooms than in my upstate New York garden, and I am loving each and every one. Our first area nursery opens on Saturday and maybe they will have pansies ready for transplant. I love Carolina jessamine. It reminds me of trips we used to take to Charleston in March to escape winter for a few days. (Not this year!) You made this tired of winter reader happy today!

    1. The jessamine always brightens my winter days and reminds me that spring is near.

  3. So jealous you have these blooms already. We still have some small piles of snow but, it was 60 today so soon it will be gone.

    1. Yesterday and today we have had much warmer weather with highs around 70 so I think perhaps our winter, which seemed to go on forever, is over.

  4. I hope you enjoy warmer, more spring-like conditions over the coming month. The weather seems "off" across the country, albeit in different ways. In my area of Southern California, it seems we're moving fast toward summer already, without the winter rain we need to make it through that long hot, dry season.

    1. Yes, weather patterns have definitely been disrupted by climate change. It is hard to know what to expect next.

  5. Beautiful blooms!
    Love to see the happy smiling faces of the Pansies!
    And those dainty Dianthus - so pretty!
    Happy Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day!

  6. Stunning.

    I've got my azaleas blooming, and many of the plants that looked like they'd been ruined in the freezes are starting to pop back.

  7. Among the first plants we buy each spring are pansies for a splash of colour out front. Like good Canadians, a little frost is not going to deter them! We have had above freezing temperatures for a couple of days now, with more in the forecast, so the snow is melting away. The nights are still cold, so the conditions are ideal for tapping the maple trees and sap buckets are appearing everywhere, and the smoke is puffing up from the sugar shacks. Soon we will have fresh maple syrup.

    1. Thank you, Carrie. There's not much there but what there is is our reward for making it through winter.
