Garden Blogger Bloomday for March 2009

Happy Springtime from Ireland!

The weather has been getting a bit warmer, flowers are popping up all over, especially the yellow colors.

Our cat Pippin enjoys the warmth against the fence, behind the daffodils.

The last of the snowdrops still blooming in the shady spots. The snowdrops in sunny spots are faded already.

Wallflowers are beginning to open.

The forsythia has opened up a sprinkling of yellow flowers.

Euphorbia octapus-sucker-like flowers have been out for a while.

The heather too has been blooming for more than a month, still looking lovely.

There's a teeny tiny blue wildflower blooming here and there. This might be a veronica of some sort? Not sure. There are 4 pale blue petals, and it's very very small, maybe smaller than my baby fingernail.

Daisies blooming in the grass.

Another unknown wildflower. It's very pretty, looks almost like buttercups. Maybe celandine?


And more daffodils.
See what's blooming all over the world, visit Carol's blog for links to Garden Bloggers everywhere, as we welcome in spring in the north and autumn in the south.

Lovely photos. We don't have any wallflowers this year, and seeing yours has just made me hugely nostalgic for their perfume - my granddad always grew them and I adore the smell.

Your Wallflowers are so pretty, I just love their subtle shading & coloration. I wish Heather would grow here, I admire it so much, and yours is such a cool shade of pink.

What a lovely collection of blooms! I especially like the heather...although it's difficult to choose. Happy Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day!
