How the Garden Grows

At the end of March more of the spring bulbs on the south side of the house are blooming every day.

More crocuses!


I think the seedlings around this scilla are baby scilla. If so, and all goes well, there should be quite a mass of these flowers next year.


There are two fritillaria in the bed. Last year they formed buds but neither bloomed, I think because the buds are not frost tolerant, and formed well before the last night of frost (usually sometime in May). This year I'll try to protect them in a timely fashion, but in the fall I'll probably move them to a bed that stays frozen longer than this one does.
