Spring is Marching Along On My Corner of Katy: Garden Bloggers Bloom Day March 2019

It's been an odd spring here in south central Texas ... some plants are blooming behind time, some ahead of time and some on time.  It's all good, though. Here are a few shots from the gardens.

This is a Coreopsis I purchased at my nearby Lowe's and I am happily
surprisedby how well it's doing. Will it continue throughout the
 heat of late spring and the evil season? I can only wait and see!

Hinckley's Columbine with visiting friend
I am delighted with how well this Rudbeckia 'Early Bird Gold' is
doing in my garden. I wish I'd bought more of them at the delightful
Urban Roots garden center in New Orleans when I visited in January.
Red Fountains Skullcap and Freesia/Laperousia/Anomotheca laxa,
a small bulb that also reseeds, which is why it's all over the gardens

Texas Bluebonnet and Texas Betony 

Aesculus pavia, Red Buckeye

Another Rudbeckia, this one self-seeded, I think 'Indian Summer'.
But what's with the manky foliage? 

Spiderwort, spiderwort and more spiderwort.
It will soon be history in this area.

This pink Spiderwort, however, I absolutely adore. It
goes dormant in the heat and isn't as relentless a reseeder.
I call it Zapp Hall Pink because my original plants
were found at Zapp Hall in Warrenton.
This small bed has been a real joy thus far this spring.
I planted Phlox, Dianthus, Violas and Snapdragons
amongst the other beauties. Yes, that's more Zapp
Hall Pink towards the patio. Bless my mess.
That's it for March. Full disclosure: I finally finished this post just after April Bloom Day. My good friend Carol at May Dreams Gardens, the originator of Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day, now hosts a podcast with our friend Dee Nash of Red Dirt Ramblings. Give The Gardenangelists a listen!
