Spring Blooming Flowers 4-7-2016


A blooming flowers post! Yeah Woowoowoo!!!

Allllright. I think I might be able to compose myself (giggle), ok probably not.. This is the first phenology post of 2016. If you started following me this past winter, you’ve missed some of the best parts of this blog, the flowers!! I am super-excited that I am starting my fourth year of finding blooming things and have three previous seasons to link back to. Sweet! It may not a PhD thesis, however it is fun data to me.

Hop on the T.A.R.D.I.S. to see what was blooming in 2013 – 20142015

(Sometimes I don’t have corresponding post near the date, so no link will be given)


I think these were mid-spring bloomers, so we’ve got a week or two here. I planted these daffodils last fall. It snowed one day and was sunny and 60F the next day. Gotta love lake effect weather.

Scilla siberica – Siberian Squill


Viola sorori – wood violet, sweet violet, English violet, common violet, florist’s violet, or garden violet


Forsythia viridissima – Forsythia


Puschkinia scilloides – Striped squill


Pachysandra ‘Green Carpet’

  1. Other than those crocus that Choppy stepped on, we’re still (impatiently) awaiting more flowers in the yard. I did see a magnolia making a valiant effort, but it still wasn’t there.

    Of course, if I wake up to a frozen pond again tomorrow, I’m pretty sure we’re officially going backward in time and weather. And that the flowers are never coming out.
