Tiny spring beauties.Winter go away! That's enough!


We have real merry-go-round: winter! spring! winter! SPRING?? let's assume SPRING - even if the snow appears sometimes. Snow that we didn't have in the winter AT ALL.

Today I focus on tiny plants in my garden, but very charming. On the picture above: chionodoxa luciliae - bulb plant, once planted stays in the soil and blossoms beautifully every spring.

Primula dentata - graceful shape and round flower, that is to come on the picture.

Pulsatilla - cotton flowers are about to be open. Even before opening they look little unreal.



Pushkinia libanotica - not very popular, but so cheering in early spring garden. Once you plant the bulbs, they stay there and every year there is more flowers appearing.




Scilla sibirica - on the picture with pulmonaria - also blue, also from bulb and also dependable bloomer in early spring.

They are beauties! Blue is my favorite flower color.

So cheery! Much better than the snow! Today I will volunteer at our annual Gardenscape, as well as tomorrow, so I am looking forward to some green even if it inside!

Had just a stroll through your garden. The tiny spring announcers are very charming.
ciao until next visit.

Great photos! I'm a fan of Pushikinia, although I don't have any in my garden I planted some at the cemetary where they've spread into a beautiful carpet.

Spring is so elusive this year - but your little darlings are beautiful - No buds in my garden yet, and it makes me sad.

Aha, I grow puschkinia too! I wonder why they aren't more popular? I love the clear blue stripes on the white flowers, or is it like a zebra; white stripes on a blue flower? Whatever the case, I won't be seeing mine for a month or more yet. Like you, I'm really tired of winter, but it's hanging around like odd socks or old fish.

These little beauties give us indeed a certain Spring feeling. Luckily we have Spring now, snow has gone two days ago and I am working in the garden :-) !
Have a sunny Spring weekend, Ewa!

Ewa, you've got plenty of lovely blooms in your garden already! How I wish I had some pulsatillas - I tried to sow some but the seds didn't germinate. But, I do have chionodoxa - a white variety, and they're just about to open.. ./Katarina

I've never met pushikinia! They are beautiful. Here too Spring is most elusive. We had hail and thunder yesterday. We never get thunder here. Today appears sunny and dry--is it a trick?

Naturegirl said...

Lovely sign of Spring for you!!
Hope it stays warm and no more Snow!!
Here in Arizona my snow covered garden is just a memory!! So much blossoming in the desert!!

It's wonderful to see someone who is as excited about Spring as I am! Thanks for mentioning chionodoxa and puschkinia- they are some of my favorites, and I always forget what they are! You take beautiful photos, too...
