Garden Bloggers’ Bloom Day – March 2011

Unfortunately, nothing is yet blooming in my zone 6, southwestern Ohio garden other than the Crocuses. Even my Lenten Roses are behind – perhaps they know Easter is extra late this year? But, my Daffodils are about 4-6″ out of the ground and I can hardly wait! Over the years, I have planted 1000+ bulbs of many varieties – early, mid and late season bloomers so that the area we refer to as the Way Back (the last 1/6 of our 2 acres) is glorious for about 6 weeks and I can cut with abandon since they have multiplied over the years. My inspiration for this naturalized area is the nearby Cincinnati Nature Center (see http://www.cincynature.org) , the 175-acre wooded estate of Carl and Mary Krippendorf that is now open publically and offers a plethora of daffodils each spring.

    Please post a photo! Very inspiring. I think I will start something similar in the fall, hopefully with your help. 🙂
