PansyWhite What's blooming now 2018

Now that spring is finally starting to appear although late in most parts in the east, it's time to start posting what's blooming in your gardens, woods, and fields.

Today the fothergilla is starting to bloom. Woodland wildflowers have been blooming awhile now.

The only thing blooming around here is some white thing that seems to cover everything.


Not snow on the mountain, just snow, lots of it.

Weedy fields, that is why I live in the South! It did snow a little first week of April, but it didnít stick and now I have leaves and flowers all over. Of course, our summers are awful!

I am in Texas now, where I canít name the wildflowers. At home in Chapel Hill as I left, I also had fothergilla, spicebush, phlox, celandine poppies, bluebells and trillium blooming. It is fun to watch the progression of spring as each plant/shrub/tree comes into leaf and bud at its own time.

I've been to NC, a nice state, lots of forest.
But your right about the summers.
70's are about as warm as I'd like to see it.
I do enjoy the winter.
the most frustrating part is Springs like this where it starts to warm up, you get outside projects started and then the weather changes and your projects sit for a couple of days to a week.
More snow is predicted for today, 3-5 inches. but the weekend is going to be in the mid '50's.

Snow in May is not uncommon but at that time of the year you can have 6 inches one day and by noon the next day it'll be pretty much gone. So its not so bad.

On a side note with the warmer weather coming I'm going to put my starter trays of plants out in the warm sun, hopefully they will get some significant growth. They have been sort sitting idle and not doing much for the last 2 weeks or so.

Nuttin' but SNOW here right now. I did have one tiny, brave Pasque flower blooming before the snow arrived.

Nothing blooming here, as mentioned earlier we got a couple of inches more of snow this evening.

On a sad side note there are reports of dead Robins from several people.
Wife's friend had 2 dead ones in yard and several of her other coworkers have seen dead Robins as well.

We were fortunate enough to receive nearly 30 inches this week. Snowdrops blend in quite well!
