Here's a few more that make me happy...for my very late Garden Bloggers Bloom Day post
Daffodils...I have forgotten the names of many of them but, love inviting the different divisions into my garden~trumpet, jonquilla, split-cup, large-cup, small-cup, triandrus, Cyclamineus, poeticus and even a few wild ones.
Today, these bright orange cupped beauties and
the gentle yellow small-cupped ones have caught my eye.
Aren't they fabulous spilling down this hillside.
Summer snowflake! If you live in the Middle South and dream of Galanthus blanketing your garden then you must plant Summer Snowflake instead. You won't be sorry, it is not particular about soil type and even thrives in my heavy clay soil! Thank you Leslie (Growing A Garden In Davis) for these delightful Leucojum aestivum. They make my heart smile.
Now, please have a wonderful day.

Who wouldn't like all of these exotics. I especially like the spillage.ReplyDelete
Thank you Lisa, I think the Tommies look especially now this year!Delete
Goodness, gracious girl, those tommies spilling out of the clay pot are the most beautiful thing I've seen in a long time.~~DeeReplyDelete
They turned out especially wonderful this year! Thank you.Delete
What a great picture of those tommies... I love that idea and flowing down the hillside...lovely! And you are welcome for the leucojum! I am glad they like your garden too:)ReplyDelete
I love the Leucojum...They are spectacular.Delete
How delightful are those tommies running like a river down the hill? So sweet and those are some mighty fine daffodils, too. The magnolia is a charmer, and the snowflakes from Leslie are sublime.ReplyDelete
Thank you, I love the Tommies spilling from the container..What else can one do with a broken pot!Delete
Gail...these are so beautiful. Those Tommies are breathtaking. Wow, 1000 bulbs...that's hard work, but they sure are worth it.ReplyDelete
Christy, I dig a large hole and pour them in then I set them upright! It couldn't be easier, but it is time consuming.Delete
I love your tommies spilling down the hillside. Mine are tightly closed having emerged and then sitting in suspended animation waiting for warmth. I hear they may get a blanket overnight. Of snow. Time will tell.ReplyDelete
I can see why you love the Tommies so! That Magnolia is stellar!ReplyDelete
I also like the tommies and am planting them in my back lawn. So far the chipmunks seem to be leaving them alone, but we'll see what happens in future years. Thanks for joining in for bloom day!ReplyDelete
I only did 400 crocus myself, and that was plenty. That's the best use of the spilling out of the pot trick I've seen. Spring is beautiful in your garden.ReplyDelete
So many beautiful blooms!ReplyDelete
Someone suggested I should make a river with my Muscari Grape Hyacinths. (They are scattered all over the place. I want to get them all together). Now I see from your example with the Tommies what it should look like. Thanks!
Really the most beautiful crocus I've seen! Lovely magnolia, too!
how charming to live up north in the spring!ReplyDelete
Wow, it's all beautiful, but the Tommies cascading along are fabulous.ReplyDelete
Happy Spring ~ FlowerLady
WOW...that river of purple Crocus is amazing!ReplyDelete
Very beautiful. I agree about d'affaires and crocus, but would add muscari and species tulips.ReplyDelete
Fantastic! And by the way, the Verbesina virginica seeds you sent me have germinated. Looking forward to watching them come along. Thanks again!ReplyDelete
I love my exotics in early spring too...the voles like the crocus so they get some of the Tommies.ReplyDelete
Looking at all your lovely spring bulbs is making me impatient for our spring to move along. Love the crocus.ReplyDelete
I love the river of Tommies! You're the second person to mention snowflakes instead of snowdrops; I'm going to try these this fall, since my single snowdrop hasn't multiplied in three years:)ReplyDelete
Wish I could have met youReplyDelete
when I lived so close to you
my short time in the city.
Now very happy on my country property
where I plant to my hearts content...
Spring is the best as planting is more successful because rainfall is more consistent.ReplyDelete
I see spring has arrived in your parts! I love all your blooms!ReplyDelete

Couldn't agree more..
