It’s been a wet Spring, and this seems to have lengthened the bulb season. Roses are starting to bloom, and we still have a few Narcissi and Freesias, and lots of Iris, Ixia, and Anemones. There is even one last Tulip. The Columbine are just starting, and Lily seedlings are coming up like grass in the humus-ey soil where I’ve retained the bank with old logs.
Thanks to Cathy for creating and hosting the Monday vase at Rambling in the Garden

Your flowers are beautiful; it does make a difference if spring is slightly cooler. We had some early warmth and then it cooled down until mid May so the bulbs all started to bloom earlier than usual but then carried on for longer too – couldn’t have been better. Your images are a wonderful quality, do you have a new camera?
Thanks Christina, it’s a consolation for the fact that I can’t even start digging the ground in most places, it’s so wet. Every weather condition makes some plants happy. I don’t have a new camera but I increased the image size – I had been shrinking them down quite a bit.
Thank you 🙂
What a fresh looking display, Cath – I have really enjoyed peering into the posy to identify all the different elements. Thanks for sharing them
Thank you Cathy, there is a lot of variety at the moment 🙂
Glorious. I love the colours.
Oh your spring flowers are soo beautiful!! 🙂
Thank you 🙂
You’ve no shortage of blooms this spring! You have me rethinking my decision to skip anemone tubers this year. I love them but they’ve never done well in my current garden.
Oh, I grew them in large tubs full of compost. Luckily I mixed them in with the Tulips which mostly got eaten.
Gorgeous as always, Happy Monday or Tuesday, by now.
Thank you 🙂 Happy Tuesday to you too.
So refreshing to see these spring blooms as we head into the bleak season.
Thanks Rickii, I am looking forward to warm weather and mud drying up.
Oh, my, so much to love! Seeing your spring bouquet makes my heart sing as I sit here in autumn. That first photo with the purple anemone looks like Flemish painting. Ixia, N. Thalia, poppies bursting from their buds – all gorgeous!
Thanks Eliza, I love to see your brilliant Autumn leaf photos as well
Oh, goodness! Spring. And we’re just beginning the descent into fall and winter in Toronto. Eliza’s right about the Flemish painting — especially against the dark background.
Gorgeous pictures 🙂 Looking forward to spring already to be honest!
