Soothsayer: Aye, Caesar, but not gone.
—Julius Caesar, Act III, Scene 1
The Ides of March brought an abundance of blooms following recent rains and a few days of temperatures in the sixties. I've shown many of the different daffodils blooming here in recent posts. For those of you who like to see the whole and not just the blossom, I made distance pics with a very few close up so you can enjoy certain blooms.
Blue Delft Hyacinths and a Camellia. The grey haze at upper right is Dogwood in bud

At upper left is 'Leonard Messel' magnolia
'Ice Follies' daffodils with seedling poppies and larkspur
Magnolia stellata 'Leonard Messel'
Beyond the magnolia, you can see green haze of spring.
Sailboat jonquillas in the near view.
Loropetalum in the distance.
This is what I see from my kitchen window.

We studied 'Julius Caesar' by Shakespeare in Sophomore English class.
There's a poll on my sidebar that incorporates a popular poem about what causes plants to die. Be sure to check off any excuses there for a lack of blooms today.
