Spring delayed this year

When there was a rise in temperature in the beginning of this month it felt like its time to bid adieu to Winters but the cold weather persisted with sudden occurrence  of hailstorm in my city .It created havoc in my garden as well and envisaged in the extension of Winter days .

                                  Garden  grass covered with hail after heavy hailstorm

Meanwhile some perennials left there hibernation to show some blooms 

                                                                  Tecoma stans or Yellow bells

Although there were many other annuals blooming before hailstorm occurred but only some of them survived the storm and able to bring some blooms into the garden at this time.Hopefully the other annuals will bring blooms back when  spring weather will be in full swing .                       
Thanks Carol for hosting   Garden Bloggers blooms day                                                                                                              


  1. That's a pretty color godetia. Last year was the first I'd grown godetia. I saved lots of seeds! Happy Bloom Day. Keep well.

  2. Wish I could grow Calliandra here. I love those little brushlike flowers! Happy spring to you! We had snow here in Portland yesterday. I imagine we were just as surprised as you were to see a hail storm in March. Weird times indeed...

  3. Beautiful blooms--I recognize several that I can grow, too! Happy blooms to you!

  4. The Tecoma stans is such a cheerful color. The hail storm looks horrible. I am surprised anything survived this tempest. Happy GBBD.

  5. Beautiful blooms (as always) despite the hail. Hoping for a speedy recovery of your garden. I'll have some of these in my garden but not for several months. Happy GBBD! Alana

  6. The Godetia 'Salmon Princess' is a beauty <3 No hail, no snow here in the north.

  7. Hail is such a destructive force in the garden. We always dread its occurrence. I pruned my Tecoma stans back during the winter. It will be months before it is ready to bloom again. All of your blooms look lovely. Thank goodness they survived the hail.

  8. I hope all your lovely plants survived your hail storm You have lots of lovely annuals, you garden must be very colourful.

  9. We're finally getting rain which is overpowering the daisies. The volunteer lupine alongside our garage is now in bloom. I can't get over how the yellow bells look like yellow freesia.

  10. I think we're done with snow, but maybe not north of us! Not a bad time of year to be locked down.

  11. Beautiful flowers! I hope the delay is short!

  12. Lovely flower shots. Hope they made it through the snowfall!

  13. It's so cruel that hail would come after the blooms! Your flowers are gorgeous and I hope they all survived :)

    Thanks for your contribution to 'My Corner of the World' this week!

  14. What a horrible hail storm! However, you still managed to find some beautiful blooms.

  15. Your blooms are lovely. Warm and cold temps keep alternating here. Spring cannot make up its mind. Thanks for linking up.

  16. All your blooms are so beautiful. I hope the nasty weather didn't do any harm. Now that spring has officially arrived there will be warmer days and lots more blooms to come. Happy Bloom Day!

  17. What beautiful flowers bloom with you !!!
    Wonderful the photos!
    Greetings Elke
