Welcome to Blooming Friday! It’s always exciting to see the first blooms on any plant and although today’s theme is pink, I only have two kinds of blooms in two different shades of pink. To see other delightful posts, please visit our gracious host Katarina @ ROSES AND STUFF.
I didn’t get much success with hollyhock last year but it was a heart-warming sight to see this bloom on the plant a few days ago.
But there’s nothing like seeing the first bloom on a plant that you’d gone to certain lengths in order to get it!! I got the bulbs from my aunt last year around April. This variety is said to bloom twice a year and March and November are the officially designated months!! Well, last year was a no-show but I’m hoping they live up to their name and reputation!!! Note that an itsy-bitsy spider has already found its niche!Not to mention the tiniest pollinators already in the thick of it even before the bloom has fully blossomed!Another first (of the season) is the Walking Iris/Neomarica gracilis. The plant is named so because the flowering stalks take root after bending over and making contact with the ground. In cooler climes it’s said to bloom twice a year but here it’s just once and March is the most active month.
Wish you all a blooming weekend!!
