March Bloom Day (Early)

No 'long views' of the garden yet - a very cold winter and an overly enthusiastic annual pruning have left the garden looking like a plucked chicken.

Cuphea: Lovely in a terra cotta pot, it's tropical sunset colors are sparked by just a touch of purple.

Daffodils - true harbingers of springtime.

Aquilegia:  Soft, butter yellow and creamy white petals set play nicely against the lacy, blue-green foliage.

Another pairing of pale yellow with lacy foliage - but very different in feel.  These poppies are cherished in my garden - from the handfuls of seed I sow every year only a few bloom.

Pink freesia:  Sweetly scented, pink with just a hint of lavender, it almost appears to be lit from within by a tiny yellow flame. 

And finally, Geranium 'Bill Wallis'.  From Annie's Annuals in the bay area.

You actually make it appear really easy along with your presentation however I
to find this topic to be actually something which I think I'd by no means understand. It kind of feels too complicated and very wide for me. I am having a look forward to your subsequent post, I will attempt to get the cling of it!
