It is amazing what a few days of warmth can do here in the Pacific Northwest; spring is here and it's wonderful. The tree frogs are singing, a Rufus humming bird has been spotted and bright green growth emerges from the soil.
In my garden, late February and all of March is the time for my hellebore's to shine. They have little competition as far as blooms go this time of year, so let us enjoy.

And of course, it's not spring until a few daffodils bloom.
Along with purple rock cress.

My mood has lightened significantly with parts of my gardens blooming and some sunshine. It feels like we've turned a corner and lighter, brighter days are ahead.

Cheers & Happy Garden Bloggers Bloom Day,
You're right, the few warm days have really made spring erupt seemingly all of a sudden! How cool is that? You have some beautiful blooms. I'm especially fond of spring promise Charlotte hellebore. They were all the rage at the Seattle show last year but I didn't buy one and am now kicking myself for that. Happy GBBD!ReplyDelete
Happy GBBD! It really does feel like spring is here!ReplyDelete
I swear your photography gets better and better every time you post--you caught so many gorgeous shots! I'm a sucker for a hellebore with freckles--I need to hunt down some like Charlotte. Happy spring!ReplyDelete
Those Hellebores are very beautiful - especially Charlotte (though to me this the name of potato variety!) . I hope that the little plug-plants I bought last year will be ad good one day. They seem to be growing very slowly. Is that normal?ReplyDelete
What would an early spring garden be without heelebores?ReplyDelete
Wow, you have so many blooms already! I need some more early bloomers in my garden.... beautiful photos.ReplyDelete
You have some beautiful Hellebores Jennifer!ReplyDelete
Lovely post...happy spring!ReplyDelete
Things are looking lovely Jennifer. Glad spring has arrived in your part of the world.ReplyDelete
Your flowers are beautiful. Thanks I needed to see some plants. It looks so nice and green. I still have 3 feet of snow, so I will have to live through your eyes.ReplyDelete
Love your March blooms!ReplyDelete
Beautiful pictures, Happy Bloom Day!ReplyDelete
Hi Jennifer, just stopping by to say how delightful your blog is. Thanks so much for sharing. I have recently found your blog and am now following you, and will visit often. Please stop by my blog and perhaps you would like to follow me also. Have a wonderful day. Hugs, ChrisReplyDelete
Those hellebores are so pretty! Thanks for sharing. Over here on the East side we're just easing into the idea of spring. I'm trying to ignore the fact that it snowed today, since it all melted off by this afternoon. Take care,ReplyDelete
What gorgeous blossoms! I am completely envious of all the color you already have in your garden :-) We're still stuck with a couple of green shoots here and there and the rhubarb is peeking but there's a lot of brown, brown, brown everywhere else. I can feel spring coming, but it's not quite here yet!ReplyDelete
