The BIC Plant and Gardening Thread

Hello BIC friends and fellow gardeners! Whether you have a container on your balcony, some indoor plants, a whole garden, or even if you just happen to visit a botanical garden or see a lovely space or plant in your neighborhood you want to share, this is the place! Please share pics, tips, plans and tricks about all things gardening!  

 

For many years I had a container balcony garden with mostly flowers and herbs (when travel allowed), and I am now embarking on my first backyard landscaping and gardening journey. 

I am often taking inspiration from the natural world around me and have recently had some spring inspiration for the Makeup Challenge of the Week and have loved chatting about gardening in our other threads, so I thought a new thread would be nice. 

Itโ€™s always so interesting to me to see plants and gardens from different regions and countries, so I hope youโ€™ll join the conversation!  

PS: if you create a makeup look based on some plant or garden inspiration, please feel free to post your look or flat-lay here, too! 


Here are a few pics of my spring bulbs to start and Iโ€™ll share more soon (kindly ignore the weeds)!

Progress - My hyacinths got a *little* taller!

Even saw a buzzy little bee yesterday! These smell amazing, especially with the heat of the sun.

I can also see the little tips of the muscari  - I planted tons of those because I love them. Also, one of the daffodils is getting pretty close. 

Iโ€™m planning to plant some more perennials and natives this year. 

Re: The BIC Plant and Gardening Thread

Love seeing your garden evolve everything is blooming beautifully. So lovely ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿชดโ˜€๏ธ @sister13 

Re: The BIC Plant and Gardening Thread

Thanks! It has been sunny and 60s this week and things are popping! @peculiarzmakeup 

Re: The BIC Plant and Gardening Thread

Iโ€™m so glad to hear that, nature is so beautiful ๐Ÿคฉ itโ€™s snowing where Iโ€™m at! Itโ€™s so interesting how weather is different in different places. Canโ€™t wait to see more as your garden flourishes more with each day! @sister13 

Re: The BIC Plant and Gardening Thread

We still get a lot of snow in March and April, but then a lot of warm, sunny days. We had a mild winter is year, so itโ€™s all happening sooner than last year! @peculiarzmakeup 

Re: The BIC Plant and Gardening Thread

Lovely pics, @sister13 ! ๐Ÿฅฐ  I can smell them from here! ๐Ÿ™‚

Re: The BIC Plant and Gardening Thread

Thanks, they are such a treat! @Titian06 

Re: The BIC Plant and Gardening Thread

Hyacinths are so pretty, @sister13 .  They're just happy-looking.

Re: The BIC Plant and Gardening Thread

Thanks, they are!! @CookieGirl1 

Re: The BIC Plant and Gardening Thread

They are beautiful @sister13!๐Ÿฉท

Re: The BIC Plant and Gardening Thread

Thanks! So eager to see more blooms! @faeriegirl 

Re: The BIC Plant and Gardening Thread

These hyacinths started blooming, but theyโ€™re pretty stubby. I had a few last year that didnโ€™t get very tall, too, but others that looked like normal hyacinths. I was so surprised to see these already, they are barely above the soil/mulch, lol. Pics better if you click on them, so blurry in the preview pics. ๐ŸŒธ๐ŸŒบ๐ŸŒท๐Ÿชป

Re: The BIC Plant and Gardening Thread

These are all so lovely and beautiful! The one popping out of the snow is just so magical. Love seeing your amazing garden ๐Ÿชด @sister13 

Re: The BIC Plant and Gardening Thread

Originally, it said our temps were supposed to get very low so I was worried, but then just snow which insulates them. Canโ€™t wait to see more blooms!! @peculiarzmakeup 

Re: The BIC Plant and Gardening Thread

That is such a fun surprise it grew up out of the snow so neat! Canโ€™t wait to see when you post ๐Ÿซถ๐Ÿชด @sister13 

Re: The BIC Plant and Gardening Thread

@sister13 - Apparently your hyacinths are eager for spring too! ๐Ÿ˜„๐ŸŒป  I love daffodils--a sure sign of spring!

Re: The BIC Plant and Gardening Thread

i canโ€™t wait to see things come up! @Titian06 

Re: The BIC Plant and Gardening Thread

I actually received this in the mail, Iโ€™m not sure where it was found but it sure is beautiful ๐Ÿคฉ
