As usual, I am late; this time for the Garden Bloggers’ Bloom Day. It’s supposed to be on the 15th of each month but I got carried away with gardening and didn’t do enough of the taking pictures and writing part to be on time. I may have missed out altogether on March, probably because it’s likely the garden was under snow at the time.
There are two common entries and two not-so-common. We’ll start with what most people probably have:
as well as some rather late and particularly gaudy Primroses
From the common to the more refined; the simple but very beautiful Anemone Blanda (windflower)
Finally, the exquisitely delicate Erodium Pelargoniflorum:
There’s also a periwinkle that could be added but I couldn’t get close enough to it to take a proper picture so you’ll just have to take my word for it.
The white flowers theme will continue next month as we see the Bridal Wreath (Spirea x Arguta) spectacularly burst into a fountain of tiny white flowers and the scented flowers continue with the imminent opening of the Osmanthus Burkwoodii. Star attractions that are still gearing up for their show are the double-flowered cherry blossom and my personal favourite, of course, the Wisteria.
Garden Bloggers’ Bloom Day is hosted on the 15th of every month by Carol at May Dreams Gardens. Visit her blog to see what’s in bloom this month in gardens around the world.
