Garden Bloggers Bloom Day – March 2017

Oh what a delight it is seeing colour in the garden and to be able to take lots of photos for GBBD this 15th March 2017.

We are experiencing a few mild days here on the Sussex south coast,  which is warming up the garden and bringing everything into life.  However, while writing this there is a news report on the TV about snow blizzards and icy winds on the East Coast of the USA, and I do hope it doesn’t come our way.  I am all too aware of snow in April, but there is always hope that it won’t happen.

I am really happy with the variety of daffodils and narcissus in the garden, and there are many more waiting to burst into flower, so plenty opportunities to take more photos.  It really is adding brightness around the back garden,albeit hosting minute slugs which are nibbling away at the petals.

Rather than write any more for you to read,  I am just going to post photos instead in colour sections to enjoy.

I have a ‘wild’ bit at the end of the garden, which is quite overgrown with ivy and a pile of wood that I leave as a bug hotel.   In amongst all of this there arie some proper primroses, which along with daffodils, I see as a true harbinger of spring.

On the 15th of each month Carol at May Dreams Gardens hosts this meme.  Please hop over there and take a look at all the contributions to Carol’s GBBD as well as looking at her lovely garden.

  1. You have a nice collection of daffs/narcissus. I am always in awe of those that can grow primroses. I think they are the most cheerful spring face in the garden. Maybe I think this because I can’t grow them. Happy GBBD.

  2. Each year I feel pleased to see the early little daffodils, am glad of the later ‘ordinary’ ones and admire the white ones . . . but it’s the narcissae / narcissuses (?) with the bright orange centres which give me a great jolt of joy each time I see them.

  3. Isn’t it great to have the garden filled with colour again! Your post has reminded me that my mother’s Pieris will be looking glorious at the moment; sadly I won’t see it as she’s now in a care home and her home was sold before Christmas last year. I have a small seedling Pieris that I brought away before the sale, hopefully that will flower in future years.
