Blossom and Branch NC

The first thing to bloom in the garden this year were the Hellebores.   This was my first year growing them and arrival was so exciting, finally something blooming in the garden again.  Our peach trees also bloomed early this year.  Scattering their pink petals all over the ground like pink snow.

Next up are the anemones.   They don’t seem to mind the cold  and came on the scene at the end of February and are are still going strong a month in.

The bride double anemone is a favorite of mine.

I was bummed I didn’t get my pansy seeds sown this year, but it didn’t matter as last years self-seeded themselves and popped up all over the ranunculus bed.

Next up were the hyacinths and daffodils.  The hyacinths can perfume an entire room.

I also had my first ever Icelandic Poppy bloom.  The color and ruffly petals are stunning.  My favorite this spring and I plan to plant an ample supply next year.  The trick is we have to sow the seeds in the fall here in NC.

With our crazy weather, we didn’t have enough chill time for the tulips this year, which ended up causing many of them to only grow 1-2 inch stems before blooming.

However, many of my single traditional tulips were unphased.
