Spring-Time in a Bottle

I thought I'd bottle up a little bouquet of spring for this Garden Bloggers Bloom Day to show you what's blooming in my garden this cold February day.

Pictured are 'Ice Follies,' 'Fortune', and 'Grand Primo' Daffodils, as well as Creeping Phlox (Phlox subulata) and the tiny white blooms of my earliest blooming spiraea called 'Mellow Yellow.'   The foliage of the spiraea emerges lime green after these sweet little blooms fade away.

I sure wish you could smell the 'Grand Primo' daffodils 
They are so fragrant!!

My spring-time in a bottle has inspired me to rewrite an old Jim Croce song....

If I could save springtime in a bottle
The first thing that I'd like to do
Is to save every bloom
Till Eternity passes away
Just to share them with you

If I could make spring last forever
If words could make wishes come true
I'd save every bloom like a treasure and then,
Again, I would share them with you

But there never seems to be enough time
To post the pictures of the blooms
Once I take them
I've looked around enough to know
That daffodils are the ones I want to grow
in springtime 

Happy Garden Bloggers Bloom Day!   

Visit Carol @ May Dreams Gardens to see what's blooming around the world.
