Wood violets in bloom

Another return to the garden this week – the wood violets. So pretty. I am wandering around the yard saying “Hello” to all the emerging flowers – anything rather than finally get down to doing my taxes.

Sparaxis in Bloom!


My Sparaxis is in bloom and looking blue as blue. I love these delicate early season flowers. They are always blooming by Mother’s Day and they remind me that life goes on. One of my neighbours has a huge swatch of lawn covered in sparaxis in bloom and it looks like blue snow. They spread so rapidly that if you didn’t like them, you would call them a weed. But they will be disappear a few weeks from now, as the plant dies down quickly after blooming and the corm lies dormant until the following spring.
