When I got back from Mom’s last Sunday, I came home to a pile of beautiful daffodil blooms.
I probably planted at least 10 different types of daffodils but so far only these two types are blooming. They are both very traditional, and I love them! But then I love all daffodils.
The weather throughout the week was absolutely amazing, and as a result the spring bulbs have practically exploded!
The Grape Hyacinths are just getting started adn as you can see, I have three colours. The traditional blurple, a pale pink (which I’ve had previously), and a new, solid white one! And these will multiply year after year.
In addition to the white hyacinths in the porch boxes, I have others coming up in all the gardens. Most are in the catio. So far, I’ve got this lovely periwinkle blue, a pretty pale pink, and a much bolder pink. The bold pink one has had a bit of a rough time thanks to Lemmy and his constant zoomies. Though the flowers may be broken this year, the bulbs are strong, and hopefully, our ginger mister will be a little calmer next spring.
I showed you some of the Glory of the Snow last week, but at that time it was only the light pink ones. But now I have blurple and white ones coming up too. Like the grape hyacinths, these will multiply year after year. Mom has a stunning show of the blurple ones in her garden.
And last, I was surprised by this Pasque flower mid-week. I had Pasque flowers at the townhouse, but they never bloomed this early – it was usually May before I saw them.
And there’s so much more to come. I just love this time of year!

That Pasque flower is gorgeous!
I am happy to see that spring finally caught up with you. I’m looking forward to all the blooms I know you’ll be sharing with all us bloomless folks from now on.
Love those sweet daffy’s.Well, actually, I love all of the flowers. Your yard is going to be gorgeous this summer.
Beautiful blooms! I bet your new neighbors love admiring your flowers.
Such gorgeous colours.
Oh, the beauty of spring! Your yard and gardens will be the star of the neighborhood. I have never seen white or pink grape hyacinths. Glad spring has arrived in your area.
So pretty to get the colors after the dreary of winter! I picked a grape hyacinth in WA when on a walk with granddaughters–it was not in someone’s yard! lol
