Garden Blogger Bloom Day - March 2014

It is finally March! We hope that the snow storms and below freezing day temperatures are now behind us.  We had a rough winter here in Ohio, hardiness zone 5b.

The Witch Hazel started to bloom yesterday as the temperatures started to rise. 

Today I discovered some of the Snow Drops out of the ground in a rush. Where did they come from? Two days ago there was nothing over there but a blanket of snow.

And that it is all that it is in bloom in our garden today.

Garden Bloggers’ Bloom Day is hosted on the 15th of each month by Carol at  May Dream Gardens.  Visit her blog to see what is in bloom this month in gardens from many climates and countries.


  1. I think Witch Hazel is such an interesting looking plant, but I've never seen it in our area. I'm glad that spring is on the way in your area. We seem to have skipped over winter here in California and went straight to spring! A very unusual year. Happy Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day!

  2. It is very much winter in Maine. We have several feet of snow on the ground. The temperature today is in the teens with the wind gusting up to 25 mph. Maple sugar making should be in full swing but it is too cold for the sap to run. I am new to subscribing to your blog. I finally did after enjoying your garden on GPOD.

    1. Thanks for finally making it to my blog! It will warm-up soon in your area as well! It has no choice now!

  3. The closed up Snow Drops look like street lights in a fairy village...quite dear.

  4. The snowdrops just popped out of the snow here in northwest Ohio. What a winter! Some years we see them in Late January. We have a witch hazel we can see from our sunroom window. In the summer when the leaves are backlit by the sunlight......beautiful! It's truly an underrated shrub.

  5. I love the blooms on your Witch Hazel and have thought of getting some myself but need to find a place. Looks like spring is making its way to you! I also like your close up of the snowdrops.
