5 New Spring Blossoms

We are late compared with England and Texas, but looks like spring is afoot in Madison! Siberian Iris are quick to bloom in April. I am very happy to see them.

Crocus is so two weeks ago, but they were great to see; very cheery.

New bloomer today. I looked up flower photos to find its name; striped squill.

The daffodils enjoyed the spring showers. They were inspired today to bloom!

Thanks for visiting our garden. More news as the flowers emerge…

  1. Daffodils are definitely my spring favourite. Such a bold statement. It’s almost as if they shout: ‘Look at me, look at me!’. Any splash of colour is so, so welcome in spring. Thanks for sharing these pictures.

  2. These are beautiful!
    I’m particularly fond of the Blue Irises.

    I think I would have to choose Wisteria as one of my own favorites. They smell heavenly.

    Thank you for sharing these with us!

      1. You’re very welcome!
        And, goodness, no.. I can’t imagine the Wisteria would survive the kind of cold Wisconsin gets either. I know I probably wouldn’t. 🥶😆
        I am currently reading Verity by Colleen Hoover and it is.. something else.
        What about you?

      2. Mostly yes, non-fiction nature narrative is tricky to write. I was interested in the orchid thief’s story more than the history of the Europeans’ plundering orchids from around the world. I’m sticking it out. It is interesting and well written.

  3. Lovely. My faves are daffodils. I always loved teaching my students this kids’ poem: “Spring comes hurrying over the hill, phoning the news through a daffodil.” Except for during the last years of teaching, I had to demonstrate what an old landline phone was, so they could get them meaning of the poem….;-)

    1. Thanks for the teaching anecdote and poem! Daffodils do look like the Ma Bell classic. Yes, saw a funny video of youth trying to figure out a rotary dial phone. They didn’t know about dial tones. 🙂
