There are no blooms whatsoever in my yard yet. In fact, today our high temperature was 25F (“feels like 15F”) and we’ve had snow, sleet, and freezing rain. Highs have been in the 30s and 40s lately; looking ahead at the 15-day, there’s no temp above 58F forecast for us here in mid-NH.
Here’s a peek at our wintery April so far.
I’ve been rather desperately looking for signs of spring in places other than my own yard; I found a couple this past week:
Hopefully, the cruel month of April will give way to the generous month of May.
Meanwhile, for lots of instant-gratification colour & flowers, here’s more GBBD, hosted at May Dreams Gardens (central Indiana, 6a):
… Late to the Garden Party (south coastal California, where spring has already peaked)
… Led Up the Garden Path (Devon, England)
… Rusty Duck, with so many gorgeous flowers (also in Devon, England)
… A Guide to Northeast Gardening in Long Island notes that spring has been “long awaited” there but nevertheless has hyacinth, crocus, hellebore, daffodils … and a photogenic bunny rabbit!
… Dirt Therapy in Vancouver, WA has rhododendron, anemone, veronica, clematis, flowering currant, quince, corydalis, and more!
