First Tiny Bouquet

February 28th, 2011

…of the year.

In bloom on February 28: Narcissus 'Rijnveld's Early Sensation', Crocus sieberi 'Tricolor', Iris reticulata 'Gordon'

Curious as to whether bouquet implies flowers or whether a bunch of greenbrier and ground pine qualifies as a bouquet, I typed bouquet into my French to English translator. Ya know what the English word for bouquet is?

Bouquet.


I just had an “aha” moment looking at these flowers. They’re all blooming at the same time. They look nice together. So wouldn’t they look as nice planted together as they do sharing vase space? Must remember this next fall when it’s bulb planting time. Must remember this next fall when it’s bulb planting time. Must remember this next fall when it’s bulb planting time. Must remember this next fall when it’s bulb planting time.

    Comments portion of the database seems to have a problem……

    I know it looks stupid to comment on your own blog, but….

    I am waiting impatiently for the first bloom. Those are lovely. Feeding the soul as well as they eye.

      I’ve been watching the winter weather in the Northeast with horrified fascination. I hope your spring comes soon! The vernal equinox is only 17 days away.

  3. Those tiny bouquets are some of the sweetest – and most perfect in detail. Looks like you have some spring, Entangled!

      Tiny flowers = tiny bouquets ;-)

      Spring is struggling along here in fits and starts – one day warm and sunny, and the next cold and rainy, and the next cold and clear….and so on. Yesterday, I noticed forsythia starting to bloom (in other peoples’ yards) and again wondered why I never plant any. Forcing branches = bigger bouquets ;-)
