March GBBD

 
Posted by Picasa
I dedicate my March Garden Bloggers Bloom Day post to my striped mud boots, which made the picture taking possible. We are still wet and muddy as well as grey and cold, but a lot of things have started blooming. The pictures in the collage starting at the top left and going clockwise: My fancy mud boots, Joseph Schwartz rose, Shasta daisy, grape hyacinth, Maggie rose, yellow snap dragon, Abraham Darby (a David Austin rose), Mutabalis rose, and the volunteer red bud tree.

Thanks again to Carol of May Dreams Garden for hosting Garden Bloggers Bloom Day.

  1. Your boot deserve kudos for not only being very pretty but practical! You have some lovely blooms today, love all the roses blooming in your garden right now Deb. It will be at least another 6 weeks before I have any of mine to enjoy. Happy Bloom Day!

  2. Well, you slog through the mud in style, Deb! I didn't know you could get them like that. Cool!

  3. Very pretty. I needed boots today too, but winter boots. At least I don't sink knee deep in snow now, the hard layer of crust has formed on top of my snow making it possible to wander through my garden.

  9. I really do need to get a pair of those boots! As much as it rains here, you would think I already have some! Beautiful roses- I like the volunteer tree too!

  11. Thanks Racquel. I enjoyed your collage as well.

    Brenda, Tractor supply has the boots.

    Cinj, I don't think I have ever been any where near snow like that.

    Joy, Do you have Tractor Supply stores in Canada. That is where the boots came from.

    Kim and Victoria, it is one of the few hybrids I grow. It smells great and is such a pretty color.

    Thanks Nancy.

    Linda, Go get them at Tractor Supply and put in a drianage hole. It will be darling.

    Cindee, That daisy is so early that the stem is about 1/2 an inch long instead of 2 feet. Still, I love it.

    Tessa, The tree is just a wonderful bonus.

    Sweet Bay, (love the name btw) Mrs. Joseph Schwartz is a favorite along with Dutchess de Brabrant, the parent. Maybe she will be blooming next month.

  15. Debbi - love your Maggie Rose -- looks just like mine. Aren't big rubber boots just wonderful? Sometimes it feels good to get out in the muck and be one with the earth.

    Diana, I love my maggie rose and my boots:)
