What’s Blooming- March 5th, 2014

5 Mar

It was supposed to rain today, and started out drizzly, but this afternoon is starting to look brighter, if not sunny. Hey, for winter going on spring in Seattle? I’ll take it!

Lots of things are starting to pop- daffs are either in bud or starting to flower, other bulbs like crocus and the early dwarf iris the same. Natives like the Indian plum and red flowering currants are also getting started, while the winter staples, the Mahonia x media cultivars, are winding down.

Camelia japonica (neighbor’s double light pink)
