On the first spring day (yesterday), my crocuses gave me a lot of joy. They are all in bloom: purple, violet, white, and yellow. I am slightly afraid of my tulips and daffodils because they are growing fast. Unfortunately, the feather forecast for April is tough with the minus temperatures at night. I hope forecasters are mistaken. Anyway, we’ll see.
March is the first spring month, even if the first spring flowers are under the snow and the temperature is -1 at night. The first crocuses appeared in my small town garden in February. But I could take some photos only when the sun shined from behind the clouds. These crocuses are two years old. I decided not to dig them last year. Thus, they bloomed the first.
These tiny individual crocuses are only one year old; I planted them last year. I hope there will be more of them the following year. They are a little darker than the previous ones.
Also, my tulips and daffodils are crazy trying to prove that there is the highest time to bloom for them. I tried not to plant one flower on another or too close, but it never succeeded, and my tulips are growing on the crocuses.
I wonder why I didn’t buy myself this bulb flower planter earlier? It took me 15 minutes to plant Daffodils today. There is a perfect day for gardening today – a bit cloudy and warm – +13 C. After lunch, it is supposed to rain according to the weather forecast. All that I need to do in the garden is plant the Tulips. Admittedly, I had Crocuses blooming so nicely last spring that I bought myself some more, and I plant those too in the second part of September. The Sedum, as you can see, continue to bloom, and the Scottish moss is also doing well.
This morning we had only +20 degrees Celsius (+32 yesterday). So I went straight to my garden to replant my yellow Daylily. When I dug them out, I was shocked at how many there were. I prepared the ground, dug out, picked out different small roots, poured granulated compost and dug again. Then I chose the plants with healthy tubers and young roots and planted them about 30 cm apart. I also planted three bushes together in another place to see which grows better. Immediately after planting, I watered them. In a couple of days, we’ll see how they’re doing.
And my Scottish moss does seem to have taken root, despite the heat. I’ve been watering it, though, so maybe that’s why, or perhaps it just likes it here.
I planted the Scotch moss today. I hope it will grow after three days of standing in water instead of on the ground. It’s a bit cooler – only +26 C degrees and working in the garden was pleasant. I didn’t water heavily as the root system was completely wet, and the forecast promised rain in the afternoon. I sprinkled granular compost under the roots to improve the soil. And look – I have sedum in bloom, which I brought to Warsaw from Lithuania. That is the only plant flowering in my garden now.
I leave these photos here. Summer is in its best view. Pink and blue hydrangeas are blooming amazingly under my windows. These imposing flowers are not mine, but I am dreaming about growing them. One day, maybe. And yes, I can’t choose the best of them. Lilacs at the end are for the variety.
Green is a spring colour. So, only green with some white accents today in my little garden.
This year I have gorgeous daffodils in my little garden. Double-flowered daffodils are spectacular. The miniature narcissus’ are still blooming too. Now I am waiting for my tulips to bloom.
