The Garden In March
Jonquils may be the flower of the month for March, but Snowdrops are the first thing blooming in my garden. As the name implies, these little beauties are not fazed by snow and ice, The clumps of gray green foliage popped up a few weeks ago, and the clean white blossoms will open with the first warmer days. The rest of the garden is looking shabby by comparison, and that warm day will see me out tidying up the hellebores to make way for new buds already peeking out. These plants, visible from my front window, will keep me going until that explosion of green in spring.
