Spring continues to burst despite the C-19 virus. Here are some spring blooms to delight and bring good cheer!
These dainty little flowers are called Spraxis sp.
They grow from a little corm (looks similar to a freesia corm only smaller).
I planted these many years ago. It took a while for them to establish in this garden bed but now each year they push up through the blue grass and put on a wonderful display of color.
It seems there is no end in the variety of shades of pink, red and orange!
When the flowers are fully opened they are about 1.5" across.
They don't make very good cut flowers, they fad quickly. But as a garden bed flower they will bloom continuously for a month or so.
I think this blush pink might be my favorite.
We are surrounded by a lot of worry, pain and suffering right now but it's important to stop and take stock, be in the moment, and notice simple things that give us joy.
Stay well, take care, CW
