I have a few blooms for Bloom Day, but this daffodil is by far my favorite. All my daffs have poked out of the ground, but, one little patch in the sunniest spot in my garden decided to take advantage of the unusually warm, sunny day between the rain events to say hello to the day. The sunny yellow against the blue sky makes me happy.
Helleborus Winter Jewels™ 'Cotton Candy' is new to Clay and Limestone. So new, she's still in her black nursery container safe on the porch from the frizzle (frozen drizzle) we had last night. I am sure she will be a beautiful addition to the garden and compliment the Helleborus orientalis that should be blooming any day now!
Everything is covered with a layer of ice and Helleborus x'Jacob' looks like a wax flower.
Forlorn Frieda should be the name of my only blooming viola! She looks so downcast after pummeling rains and frizzle! She'll perk up when the sun comes back. I love that about violas!
Last, but certainly not least!
here and about Verbesina virginica here.
Happy Bloom Day and thank you for stopping by. Now head over to May Dreams Gardens and hostess with the mostest Carol's global bloom extravaganza for the magic carpet ride to more blooming flowers then you could imagine on this cold and gray winter day!
Keep warm and safe out there.
