Winterblooming Iris and Spring!

We are experiencing a few warm days up into the upper 60s which is encouraging Spring blooms early!

Daffodils



Crocus



Flowering quince


Winter flowering iris



And, of course, hellebores!

It was also the Winter open house at Plant Delights Nursery. They are a well known vendor of rare plants.  I purchased a few new ones for my collection!

  1. your winter iris kills me (I’ve now liked it on your blog, twitter and instagram, lol)… we don’t have them here, at least not that I know of. I love it! Everything else looks beautiful too. Happy almost spring!

  4. I wonder if they’re Iris reticulata. They bloom in very early spring here.
    The hellebores are beautiful!

  5. Beautiful plants Arthur! Love the iris. I don’t think I’ve ever seen one. I think we still have a few more weeks before we see anything up here in the Philly region.

  6. Love those pretty flowers. I used to eagerly await the first spring blossoms as the snow melted in New Hampshire and those lovely flowers will always be some of my favorites. It is so different now that I’m living in Florida where gardens are always green.
