What’s Blooming- April 6th, 2015

6 Apr

the weather has turned cool and cloudy, but as is usual this time of year, kinda blustery to stormy and with ample sun breaks. Basically, the kind of weather where if you like what you see, get out there now! If not, wait five minutes, it may change, lol.

Because of that, seems like daily there are different things popping into flower, and other things finishing up. The early spring Tete te and Dutch Master daffs are basically done, and the tulips are pretty much in full swing. 

Oh, and had the first confirmed sighting of a male Rufous Hummingbird last Wednesday! He was nectaring on the Ribes sanguineum ‘Pokey’s Pink’. I thought I saw a female earlier in the week, but couldn’t see for sure as she was carefully staying hidden in the bushes. But a flash of rufous might have been seen? Or I could have just been wishfully thinking it was there, lol… Hard to tell with these guys sometimes. But got a good look at the male on the Ribes, definitely rufous! Haven’t seen him since, may have just been migrating through.
