May 15 in my zone 5b Binghamton, New York area garden. Less than a month ago we were getting snow flurries and some overnight accumulations. Now, it is solidly spring. Although we've had cold days, we've also had days in the 80's. Spring, in fact, is speeding by too fast. With the heat, the blooms aren't lasting long. I had a species tulip that literally lasted one day, just as an example.
This year, you won't see my crocus. Or my bloodroot. Or other early spring bulbs. They are long gone.
In April I was trying to scratch out one or two flower photos and had to depend on houseplants. Now, I am so inundated I have to make collages just to keep up.
May I show you what's blooming in my yard and home this 15th of May, 2018? Yes? Because, once again, SPRING IS HERE! (Flourish of trumpets).
Cherry blossoms from a tree sapling I was given by a neighbor dying from cancer several years ago. I will never forget him (he also gave me a redbud sapling that is at the end of its bloom)
For bulbs, I've chosen collages. My tulips are somewhat done but I still have some left.
Ditto for daffodils.
And even my houseplants are getting into the act (clockwise, Thanksgiving cactus, moth orchid and African violet).
I'll even have some flowers left over for tomorrow.
