Ok, so I’m late. My excuse is that we got home from vacation yesterday and I did more looking than writing. In ten days many things had sprouted in our absence. But fortunately, although there was one short warm spell, the weather has been seasonal and many things have waited for our return. I’m just going to hit the highlights in this post although it took me over an hour to walk around and talk to all the flowers yesterday. Anyway here are the plants that are blooming in Frederick, Maryland right now…
This is one of the red-tipped Pieris but I don’t remember which.
Daphne has outstanding fragrance as well, who could ask for more.
Not sure anymore which Helebore this one is — it just concentrates on looking good.
I ordered ten of these Primulas when we returned from England last year and I was expecting a yellow flower. We’ll see what the others turn out like (not that the white one is ugly …)
Ok, so there is no flower in the picture, just a promise of flowers to come, but I couldn’t resist sharing the picture.
A little dwarf Iris rewards the visitor who is willing to get on bended knee.
Thirty years of spreading from one corm…
There are many Daffodils on the way, but this batch in the woods leads them all.
Beautiful pictures – looks like spring is definitely coming to your gardens!
Your Pieris japonica is the prettiest thing I’ve seen!!! I just love Bloom Day because I see things I otherwise might never find out about!! Thanks for sharing.

the jaopnica is absolutely a knockout! Thank you!
It is the wild morning glory, and if you stand still too long, it will cover you. Pretty, hardy and I’m fighting a battle with it every year.
Wow – the Pieris japonica looks so much like a manzanita, I’m sure they must be related. And your purple hellebore is gorgeous.
I can almost smell the Daphne…
