Garden Bloggers Bloom Day – September 2011
It’s that time of the month again; Garden Blogger’s Bloomday hosted by http://www.maydreamsgardens.com/
You’re going to have to bear with me a little at the same old boring photos… Sadly this is the reality until spring when we get new blooms appearing… Although it is likely I’ll also buy some cyclamen or viola/pansies for the winter (not a fan of pansies, but right now anything will do!).
I am seeing a few strange things… primroses are coming up, but perhaps most strange is the appearance of spring bulbs already. Normally I have the odd Iris that comes up at this time of year, clearly a little crazy and never blooms… But in this case it’s the Muscari. Almost all of them in one particular pot are producing leaves. I hope they’re not also going to end up blind like the crazy Iris’. It’s not even like I can attribute it to a cold, wet summer. It’s been incredibly dry here since spring, so it’s that they’ve been tricked into thinking we’ve had a mild winter and it’s time for them to bloom.
