It’s been a typically wacky spring here in NW Ohio Zone 6. Bulbs and buds are coming up slower than the past two (early) springs, and I’m OK with that. I’m not so OK with the hail-snow that I saw this evening, or the fact that it’s been really too cold to get out into the beds and borders and do the cleanup they so desperately deserve.
I got out a couple days ago when it was unseasonably warm and took a few photos of the emerging colors:
In the coming weeks, I’m looking forward to lots of daffodils, grape hyacinths, a few tulips, the rest of the crocuses, and a beautiful week of pink blooms on the dwarf flowering almonds.
As always, many thanks to Carol of May Dreams Gardens for hosting Bloom Day on the 15th of each month!
