Spring blooms

5 Comments

I planted tulip bulbs last fall and love seeing them come up. Tulips are one of my favorite flowers. In addition to planting them under this tree, I have tried them in a pot. We’ll see how they do. They’re a little slower to bloom. I know Jason over at Garden in a City has had lots of luck with potted tulips. Fingers crossed I do too.

A real show-stopper (as usual) is the rhododendron under the eaves of the house. There are two more fat with flower buds ready to open. And the azaleas aren’t far behind. One advantage of working from home is I can sit out among all the spring time blooms during endless hours of conference calls. How is your garden a refuge during COVD-19?

Welcome to the Arch City Gardener. My name is Mimi and I started this blog to share my journeys in learning to garden in St. Louis County, Missouri and learn more from my readers who garden. Thanks for reading The Arch City Gardener.

  1. Yes, I gaze at my snapdragons during Zoom meetings.

  2. Many of us, even professional horticulturists, are spending more time in our own gardens nowadays. It seems that we are getting more done than we have in a long time, and catching up on delinquent chores. I know that, if my work was not getting so far behind, I could take quite a bit more time for this sort of thing.

  4. That is a beautifully coloured rhododendron. I am not a great fan of them but I certainly like the look of that one.

  5. Your tulips look good! This year I don’t have tulips in pots, thought I would give that a rest at least for one season. I did plant quite a few in the ground, though.
