    Another orchid bloomed. Last year these had grown too big, so I started new ones from cuttings. I used to think they would be hard to grow, but they are just in arborist tree chips and grow fine. They make me happy.

    @Dirtmechanic that's a nice camelia. Sorry about the frost:(. Next year it will have twice as many.

    This one surprised me today, and therefore I think it's the best-looking bloom I've seen so far in March. They're usually early but this is unusually early. This Erythronium is a E. dens-canis ssp. niveum cross breed. It was sold as ssp. niveum, but it's not the species. I like it, so I keep it. I also have the species plus a few other Erythronium, both hybrids and species, scattered about.

    @Droopy, that Erythronium is lovely!
    We have a yellow type. I don't know if they will bloom this year.

    Here are flowers in my front yard today.

    Thanks, @Daniel W, we rather like it. Lovely narcissi! We've got the yellow "Pagoda", a taller type and more showy.

    Absolutely beautiful narcissi, Daniel.
    Loggie, your blue hyacinths are so lovely to see.
    Thank you both for showing your beauties.

    To be honest, I would not care to be found staggering about the yard in a disheveled state because I experimented with a tea yet unknown to me! I did not know it was possible!
