In a normal year here, the Redbud tree would bloom for about a week in mid-May, around prom time. This year it began blooming toward the end of March, so it has given us a vibrant show for nearly three weeks.
The Daffodils I planted in the fall have been blooming that entire time, too.
Crabapples of all shades are in their prime.
Other lovelies in full bloom include Lamium, Jack-in-the-Pulpit, blue and yellow Wood Violets, and Vinca.
I wasn't sure the Dicentra would survive several nights in the high 20s without cover, but they're coming on strong now.
Some blooms are past prime, but still sweet, including the Flowering Almond.
Many flowers—most way ahead of schedule—are just about to pop. The Mayapples emerged in mid-March, and are now about to bloom.
Others gearing up for bloom time include Dwarf Korean Lilacs, Trilliums, and Lily-of-the-Valley.
It’s a strange spring. But it sure is putting on a fabulous show! Thanks to Carol at May Dreams Gardens for hosting Garden Bloggers’ Bloom Day on the 15th of each month!
