Gloomy Bloom Day

It's Garden Bloggers Bloom Day, when I am reminded in early spring that I really need to plant more bulbs--Galanthus to be exact. In my new frugal outlook on the garden, I could also just spread around some of the daffodil and Fritillaria I already have. I'll probably do both.

First, the cute mourning dove nesting in my native honeysuckle. Then, it's slim pickings: some mini-daffodils, Hellebore, blood root (almost!), and the Betty Magnolia--which is supposed to bloom in May. Looking back at my past posts, I see it has bloomed in March before but never this fully this early. Looking back at old bloom days makes me so excited for the spring to come--despite the muddy mess out there now!
