Garden Bloggers Bloom Day - February 2009

The pink hyacinth is the only plant in bloom in my Bethlehem indoor/outdoor garden. See January 31 post for details of my method and madness.

The snowdrops are almost there. I imagine it will be a few days before masses of little white flowers carpet the front garden.

I saw buds on the Lenten Rose on my stroll on the garden paths this week. The Heath and Japonica are beginning to show some color.

The anticipation is euphoric!

I love your description of Euphoric anticipation! Even in my zone 7ish garden, we are always euphoric at the hope sight of a bloom in late winter. I imagine your pretty hyacinth smells delightful~~gail

Just love the smell of hyacinth in the house.

Ah! I see Hyacinths everywhere! Do they smell great? Can they be used in bouquets?

Thanks for the comments all.

These little blooms have raised my gardening spirits considerably.

I've been gone for a few days and I can't wait to go through Carol's links to see what's blooming in everyone's garden.

CS - yes the hyacinths are very fragrant. I don't see why they would not be good for a boquet unless they droop quickly. I have never seen them that way.

Hi Nan,

I was so excited to find a fellow blogger so close by. I, too, love Linden Hill.

Thanks for the info on the Hardy Plant Society.

The structural integrity post was awesome. I'm looking forward to reading your books.

Hopefully I'll get to meet you there, Marie. I'm usually working in the gardens but sometimes help in the sales area.

Have you considered listing your blog at Blotanical ( It's a great way to get connected with other garden bloggers!
