Bloom Day

I can't believe it's time for Garden Bloggers Bloom Day. I have no idea where the last month has gone. Busy, busy, busy!
Everything changes so fast in the spring, I didn't get pictures of everything. It seems like everyday something new is blooming.

Dogwood Blossoms

Wood Poppies, Sweet Woodruff, Ajuga, Snowdrop Anemone, Tulip 'Claudia'.

Snowdrop Anemone

Blue Flax
This is just starting to bloom. I love the color of flax with it's dainty sky blue blossoms.

Dwarf Korean Lilac

The Oriental Poppies are Popping.

Fern Leaf Bleeding Heart

Solomons Seal

Dwarf Solomons Seal
Isn't this the cutest? I found this last year and it only grows to about 6 inches tall. They go dormant if the soil is too dry which it did last summer. Going to try to keep it watered this year.



The Snowball Bush is loaded with blooms this year.

Cranesbill Geranium

Woodland Phlox
This is a great plant for woodland gardens and it's very fragrant! It grows more upright than the creeping phlox pictured below. Attracts hummingbirds and butterflys.

Georgia Blue Veronica
Love, love, love this beautiful little ground cover! Spreads nicely but never gets out of control.

I'm loving the miniature versions of irises. These are about 8 inches tall, but I had some purple ones that were about 2 or 3 inches that were just adorable but I didn't get a picture of them.

 This Azalea doesn't have the nicest shape to it but I do like the coral color.

  2. These are gorgeous photos.What a stunning garden.

  3. Your flowers and photographs are very beautiful. I'm so enjoying my "world tour", so to speak, of all the wonderful gardens out there via Bloom Day. The first photo of the dogwood(?) is especially nice. Happy GBBD!

  4. Ah --your blooms are great, Pearl. I think since spring was late this year, it has turned out to be prettier than ever!!!! We have Irises, Azaleas and Rhododendrons blooming. AND if this warm weather continues, we will have roses blooming soon.

    Love your Dwarf Solomons Seal. What a gorgeous little plant. I have a new Bleeding Heart --and it put out a couple of blooms so far.. They say it probably won't bloom much until next year...

    Have a great week.
