Mid-April in the Garden

Leucojum vernum
 

This year we have a late spring, that is, March was warmer than April is. In mid-April for several days, the temperature rose to +15 C. Hooray, I can take some photos of spring flowers.
All plants rejoice in the unexpected warmth, the buds of spring flowers open hour after hour.

I came to check how plant cuttings live in a greenhouse. Since the fall, I have planted several cuttings of climbing rose and red currant in a greenhouse. They overwintered well and I transplanted cuttings into separate pots. While I was busy with the plants in the greenhouse, the Crocuses, Leucojum and Chionodoxa started to open their buds.
I plan to come to the garden in 3-4 days and see what other spring flowers have blossomed in the garden.

  2. Hi Nadezda,

    Now I can see that your springflover are earlier than mine here. I have a lot of Chionodoxa, but they have not started flowering yet.
    So nice that your cuttings have survived the long winter.
    The spring is late here too.
    Happy weekend!

    1. Marit, some snow is still on the ground near the northern fence. But flowers feel warmth +15C and shoot their buds. Hope spring comes soon in your place.

  3. There is nothing quite so heartwarming and encouraging after the cold winter then spring blooms. The woodlands and meadows here are becoming decorated with colour.

    1. Elizabeth,
      There is a lot of work in the garden now. To clean, rake, collect trash, take off covering cloth, etc.
      But it's nice to work in "my garden paradise" :-)

  16. Spring in Poland this year is very late. All flowers and shrubs wake up very slowly after a long winter. We also have terribly capricious weather. Personally, I miss the warm rays of the sun a lot! Your first spring flowers in the April garden look so cute!
    Hugs and warm greetings!
