Spring 2020 Flower Pictures

Yes, it's that time of year. Hopefully I'm not alone using my time for something constructive.

The crocus have come and gone. The tulips are getting close. But in the meantime the daffodils and hyacinth rule.


Re: Spring 2020 Flower Pictures

White Hyacinth seems extra fragrant this year.

I have something growing in my yard. I know nothing about flowers so I will go take a picture.


Re: Spring 2020 Flower Pictures

Ok this is a tree, but it has flowers on it. Because we can’t leave our house, it’s the only thing I can look at thats beautiful. I thought I’d share it with all of you.

Here's my white azalea bush on Easter.

Our bleeding hearts are just poking through the ground now. I have a shady yard so my flowers always seem to be weeks later than others.

BL mixed together. My daffodils and tulips were beautiful until that wind got them. :(

A little bit of rain has help a lot of things grow, including the lawn.

There will be a bumper crop of forget me nots, even more than last year's. Irises will still be a while but definitely ahead of schedule. Lilac with lots and lots of buds. That's probably only a week from opening.


Re: Spring 2020 Flower Pictures

wish they were mine - a neighbor - along our walk

Found whatever this is in my yard-


Josh - it looks like a bulb called "glory of the snow".


Interesting. Thank you.


Re: Spring 2020 Flower Pictures

Yeah, it's past Easter but Pasque Flowers.

I don’t know if it was the frost or deer walking through but one of my bleeding hearts is bent over, some branches seem broken from the weight and my tree peony has half branches lying down. Anyone else suffer damage from the frost? More tonight.

The white bleeding heart I posted above is just like that. Happened about two weeks ago, but it wasn't the frost and snow. It was the high winds. That's come along with the snow and has been more damaging than the temperature. Daffodils bent over, neighbors tulips have and some damage.


Thanks GC. Annoying to wait all year only to have them so damaged. I can’t have many flowers due to deer damage but these have usually be left alone. Maybe next year!

I'm hoping the poppies survive. If they open wind will blow the petals off very quickly. Might only last a day and mine are very close.


Our gardens suffered a lot of freeze damage. It was 28 degrees yesterday morning when I got up and took several hours to get back above freezing. Big bleeding heart plants are now laying in a clump on the ground. We have many ferns that we’re thriving and looked fantastic a few days ago, now they are shriveled and dark green. We planted our vegetable garden last weekend (I know it was probably too early) and had everything covered. It looks like most plants are damaged but not too bad. I’m most worried about some of our trees. We have two beautifully Japanese maples whose leaves are all shriveled up; hopefully they’ll recover.

Re: Spring 2020 Flower Pictures

I'm glad I got some pictures of the poppies before this rain. It always seems like just one good rain and the petals are all on the ground all at once...


Re: Spring 2020 Flower Pictures

Every day seems like more iris come out. Besides this one at home, I also have seen the Independence LIbrary garden yellow iris donated by Hopeful in Hackettstown are about to come out.


I'm glad you're came back. I'm hoping my hydrangeas didn't take too big of a hit. On the other hand, my peony tree looks wonderful this year with huge flowers!


Re: Spring 2020 Flower Pictures

Irises courtesy of the forum members. And my peony about to flower.


Re: Spring 2020 Flower Pictures

Love the yellow ones.


Re: Spring 2020 Flower Pictures

My bleeding heart took a beating for all the wind we had the last couple weeks but seemed to recover beautifully.

Re: Spring 2020 Flower Pictures

Clematis are blooming - hopefully the deer won't get it this year - have bird netting around it -

Re: Spring 2020 Flower Pictures

My clematis won't be blooming for another month at least. Plus the sweet autumn clematis isn't until August. There's a house I walk by mornings that has a spectacular one covered in large blue flowers. Peonies getting closer and closer.

In the mean time the various irises are coming out - mostly thanks to MG!!

Tracy - Yellow looks like it's the one "Hopeful" gave out to all of us. Nice to see it doing well.

I'm glad the rhododendron I got last year to replace a tree is doing well. I see others around starting to open up. Last year was a really great year for them. This year looks good even if not as much as last year.


Re: Spring 2020 Flower Pictures

Amsonia doesn't seem to last a long time. But it looks really good this year even if there is a big old columbine right in the middle of it. I hope this is a sign of things to come.


Re: Spring 2020 Flower Pictures

This big batch just got started overnight. GC, I'm pretty sure these were yours.


Re: Spring 2020 Flower Pictures

Wonder what this black stuff is on my hollies?


Just a heads up for the gardeners and flower bed people. The last few years I’ve built Some 4 x 8 raised beds. Got topsoil from Tickners. The stuff is great. Plants thrive.


Re: Spring 2020 Flower Pictures

Walker’s Low Catmint in its second year is doing well.

Tracy - Yes. And if you smell a light grape like fragrance to them you know for sure. You can thank my mom the next time you run into both of us in Shoprite. ;-)

Dam - Holly leaf blight, a kind of fungus. Definitely take immediate action with that.


Re: Spring 2020 Flower Pictures

My rhododendrons e doing great this year!


Re: Spring 2020 Flower Pictures

On the way to Stephens State park for a walk this morning we saw this peony at the side of the access road. Wondering how it came to be there. Then realized it was across from windows of the House of the Good Shepherd. I like to think maybe someone planted it there for a loved one to enjoy from her window.

This is my Xmas cactus blooming in May!


Re: Spring 2020 Flower Pictures

Hktownie - Unfortunately it also looks like someone's smoking spot.

Iris - I've recently seen a couple really nice ones in town as well.


Re: Spring 2020 Flower Pictures

For some reason my huge baptisia is not as huge as usual. Still tall but a good foot smaller than last year.


GC I didn't even notice that! In general there seems to be more litter around lately. Such a shame.
