Soft moss a downy pillow makes, and green leaves spread a tent,
Where faerie fold may rest and sleep until their night is spent.
The bluebird sings a lullaby, the firefly gives a light,
The twinkling stars are candles bright, Sleep, Faeries all, Goodnight.

Garden Blogger's Bloom Day March

Time for another bloom day!  Seems like it rolled around faster than I thought it would.  I also thought I would have more blooms by this time-- but hey, I'm content with what I have.  First up is the bloom commonly cropping up in my yard (cemetarius blowover2us)  LOL  We live across from the cemetery and are always getting some stray silk flowers "blooming" in our yard.  They are very frost resistant!
Now for the real blooms!  Here's my white lenten rose-
My pink lenten rose-
My mini daffodil which was given to me and I don't know the name-- only that I'm thrilled to see a bloom for the first time!
Winter jasmine-
I also have winter honeysuckle blooms which don't photograph well for me.  See you in April!


  1. Your blog name totally cracked me up when I saw it on May Dreams. I had to come visit.

    How did you get the hellebores all pointing upward like that??

  2. The cemetarius blowover2us....very funny.

    You're way, way ahead of me in the blooms department. Enjoy.


  3. I love that comment on spouses and roses. The roses have passed but the spouse is still going strong. Love your blooms and it won't be long for you to have a garden full.

  4. Okay, I was totally fooled by that first photo until I read your comment. I was thinking what in the world does she have blooming... lol

  5. LOL...you are so witty. i got 2 new knockout roses from mom today...i am up to like 5 of those now!
