GBBD - March 2016


It's March, spring is in the city, snow has very quickly melted, there were two rainy nights and snow disappeared at all. But thin snowy blanket is still in the garden, melts at daytime and freezes at night.
Spring is on the windowsills at my home. Here are tulips grown in pots. They are three, the first one is in bloom, lovely red-yellow colors.  
For March 8th -Women Day - I bought a pot of primula, that was covered with buds. Look at it, primula is still blooming. Later I will plant it in the garden.


I forced some Pushkinia bulbs, it was my first experience with Pushkinia.  I wasn't hoping to see its flowers but it began to grow and nice light blue flowers have appeared. They are really vernal! When I see Pushkinia flowers I recollect the bed near a pond that in April is completely blue of blooming Pushkinia, Muscari and Scilla.



Happy Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day to all!

  1. I love to see you can force Pushkinias, they are so lovely and I'm looking forward to see them bloom in the garden next month. I think I shall follow you and put some bulbs in pots next autumn.

    1. Janneke, Pushkinia is very thankful plants, they need only warmth and sun. I love its petals - white with blue strips.

  7. Hello Nadezda girl and what pretty flowers you have blooming for you !
    That clear light icy blue is beautiful and to be next to a water feature would be perfect for it. Funny what flowers remind us of in our lives .. where we have visited , what we have seen and what scents we have enjoyed.
    Yes the Toad Lily is such a delicate looking flower .. so much like an orchid and yet so many of them are very hardy in our gardens .. I missed mine when they departed so now I have some coming and that makes me happy !
    Enjoy your garden girl !
    Joy : )

    1. Oh, yes, you're very right Joy, flowers remind us many moments in our lives.
      I've recently been to the Garden center and purchased Тricyrtis, but not sure in its hardiness.

  8. Hello Nadezda, what a beautiful colour of the primula, and pushkinias are really sweet, I had them in my previous garden but could not find them to dig them up when I moved. I will plant new ones here as they are very nice together with Scilla. Happy GBBD and hope spring arrives properly for you soon!

  10. Our climate seems quite similar to yours. Daffodils are just coming out of the ground now but the snowdrops and winter aconites have been in bloom for a while.

    I read the pushkinia has a lovely, delicate scent. It does look beautiful too.

  14. Lovely blooms! I haven't had much luck with forcing bulbs indoors, so I have given up. But what a nice way to bring spring inside. I planted more pushkinia in my garden last fall--can't wait to see these little beauties bloom!
