MARCHing into the Garden. . .

Well my friends, hard to believe that March is coming to an end.

What a crazy month it has been here in UT.  In our area we only had one day of rainfall and often had temps in the 60's and even reaching 70 now and then.  Very unusual for this time of year.

Because of that many things in our Spring gardens are blooming early.
 
Spring is my favorite time of year and one of the things I love most is all of the gorgeous blossoming trees.
My pink bloomers are still just in bud, but my Snow Fountain Weeping Cherry and Pear trees have been gorgeous!




 

The Forsythia always blooms in March here and is one of the first signs of Spring!
 

 
My Pasque flower and Hellebores (Lenton Rose) have been known to bloom when there is still snow on the ground.
 

I love the feathery foliage of the Pasque flower!



A couple years ago I bought some spent Hyacinths for 50 cents at Walmart.  They have performed beautifully ever since.  I have white, pink, and purple.
 

Every Spring I plant pots of Primroses for my porch.  When they are through blooming I transplant them into the garden.  The ones on my East side have really thrived.

 
 
I've planted Pansies for Spring color.



The Spring trailing plants have started putting on a show.


 
Little Violets are ever so sweet.
 
You can see how dry the dirt is.  Really could use some mulch, but it's so warm that I am waiting until the sprinklers are turned on.  I'm afraid it would just burn things.
 
 
The blooms of this Brunnera remind me of Forget me Nots.
 
 
As much as I am loving these warm temps, I surely hope that April will bring us showers!
 
hugs,
Jann

I will be joining these lovely parties:

I enjoyed seeing your spring blooms so much....thank you for sharing!

Pamela Gordon said...

All your spring blooms look so beautiful already. It was so nice to see them. I do hope you get the needed rain soon though. It seems the western half of the continent is very dry this past winter and has had an early spring even in Canada. I guess we on the east end of Canada got all the snow instead! Have a beautiful Easter week Jann. Blessings. Pam

So enjoyable to see! You are way far ahead of us in this department! Can't wait for it all to bloom here too! I'll have to look into that Pasque, Hellebores. I like the feathery look to it too!

Mary Ann Potter said...

Your spring flowers are gorgeous! We're having temperatures in the 70's here in North Carolina. My husband is out mowing the yard. The chickens love it; he's loosening up lots of bugs for them.

Debbie said...

Thanks for sharing your beautiful spring flowers...here in NE Ohio we can't plant until well into May...so I'll live vicariously through you!

Mary@mydogsmygardenandmary said...

Your flowers are beautiful and so pretty. We really need rain or all our flowers will die. It's really bad here. I hope that you will get rain in April. Don't work to hard in the garden.
Have a wonderful Easter.
Mary

Beautiful garden photos Jann ! We are getting to 70 degrees today ..can't wait to be able to do yard work !

Rita C. said...

Wow, Jann, I am amazed at the riot of color! Here I am basking in the delights of seeing one forsythia, one pear, a few daffs and hyacinths at a time. Our spring has been very slow to start, and last weekend's freeze hurt the daffs, but I just love the colors of spring. I hope you get showers in April too - a much needed commodity. I hope you have a wonderful Easter!
