february bloom day 2014

Happy Bloom Day Everyone!  The snow is almost gone, and although I don't have any full flowers yet, I do did see signs of springs when I walked around my yard today. The surest sign of spring are the daffodils, and yes, the very first bulbs have popped up through the much.  So yes, spring is just around the corner.

Before spring gets here, the hellebores will bloom, and they are getting very close.  I had to lift up the leaves, but the first of the hellebore buds are almost ready to go.

I was happy to see that the  Oak Leaf hydrangea sticks that I planted this fall have buds as well. I'm hoping they'll bloom this year, but I'll be happy if they grow from sticks into bushes.

The rhododendron has new leaves forming, and my azalea has managed to keep its buds.

All in all, this is about what I expected my yard to look like.  It's been a lot colder this year, so things are going to be a little slower to wake up from the winter nap.  I'm getting ready for spring though, I have seeds soaking tonight, and they will go into my mini greenhouses tomorrow!

To see what is blooming around the world, take a look at all the links posted at May Dreams Gardens!
