Spring Flowers - March Bloom (1)

Just want to share some spring flowers with you ...the first one is my favorite color, Purple (bluish purple). Grape Hyacinths (Muscari neglectum)...I will post more flowers in the next few days :)

(Grape Hyacinths)

The next flower is a Yellow one, Forsythia. They bloom in the early spring but this year, two flowers popped up in December and now they fully bloom. Forsythia can grow from 3 to 9 feet tall (1 to 3 meters) and their tiny flowers are about 1 inch (or 2 cm). Not only do they compete with all the daffodils in my garden, their precious flowers decorate our late winter days and provide food for many bees. Forsythia is not cheap to buy but it is so easy to replant them year after year. Just put some dirt over a branch and wait for it to root. Then dig it out  and  plant it to any where you desire.  Not much care except rain water :))

Huh, I am thinking about Pink for the next flower. Let me see if I can find something pink in my garden . Of course, red, white, orange and more flora shots are coming soon!!
