GBBD in March

       Finally spring came to my Northern garden, hurray! The weather was warm and I went to see if something changed in my garden. It was a surprise! My twisted willow had soft white catkins, it needs some warmer days to first green leaves grow.


I saw something yellow near the box that covers my roses. They were yellow daffodils, and after I raked old leaves and had lunch the snow and ice has completely melted and I've seen their young sprouts:  

 


 

Near the hydrangea there were the yellow hyacinth sprouts. When I had picked the leaves in mixborder I saw small red tulip leaves, don't remember what variety is, need to look at my diary.

 







In other corner of my garden, near rhododendrons I enjoyed two small buds of primrose, they are very early this spring.

 










The Leucojum vernum are on time, I always find them in March under the snow. And now when the snow almost melted they grow upright and high. I've taken the second photo after lunch as well when the temps were higher than in the morning.


 

 




















 The black current bush has the buds too. These bushes start their growth early in spring and fade their leaves early in fall. 
My neighbor Ukrainian worked in her garden too, it was peaceful and quiet day as always.  
That's all my sprouts, buds and blooming plants in March Garden Bloom Day. I think I have a nice result this month!

  1. So glad your spring is starting too! The melting ice on the soil in combination with the upcoming buds is so promising.

  6. Isn't it wonderful to see new growth pushing its way through the earth and snow. Spring has arrived here in the UK at last although still a bit of frost about. Enjoy your weekend Nadezda.

  7. Nadezda, plants feel the spring.
    Daffodils, hyacinths are already buds.
    In a few days your garden will be the color from the flowers.
    I wish you a nice weekend.
    Greetings.

  8. You are ahead of us here in Ontario, Canada this year. We had a snow storm just the other day and there is still 2 feet of snow on the ground. I look forward to seeing little buds like yours emerging from the ground.

    1. Oh, yes, I'd seen the snow storm pictures on TV, Jennifer. Hope it was the last snow in Ontario and your garden will be green soon. Thank you!

  9. I see color pushing through your ice and snow. Isn't it wonderful? I am so starved for color after this winter. I never saw yellow hyacinths sprouts before. Are they yellow or is it from the cold? Catkins are so fun to see in the spring. I enjoyed my visit to your garden. Have a lovely week Nadezda.

    1. About hyacinth sprouts I think they are yellow because had grown under the snow, without sun light. They need some day to get green.
      Thank you, Lona!

  10. I love the willow catkins. Here we call them pussy willows. Your hyacinths will be wonderful, and you'll be able to enjoy that fragrance.

  15. Wonderful signs of spring! You are ahead of us here -- spring here is very late, and we are still under snow with cold temperatures. No daffodils or anything else is up yet, but there are buds. I love seeing your little bits of color!
