Anyway, I do have a Bloom Day post this month, so here we go. Just photos and a very few words since I am too tired to look up all the cultivars or mostly the Latin. It is a riot of bloom out there (and today is beautiful).
Still have daffodils:
And the forsythia is still blooming, barely:
I don't have a lot of tulips left because squirrels and deer, but some of them are in bloom:
Redbud (the tree is tall now!):
Lilac, quince, Pieris japonica, and Mohawk viburnum:
Blueberry flowers that survived the north wind and freezing temps:
Epimedium and white bleeding heart (pardon the weeds, a phrase you can assume repeated throughout this entry):
Spanish bluebells, grape hyacinths, polemonium:
Virginia bluebells with bleeding hearts:
Bleeding hearts with celandine poppy - both thugs but pretty:
A friend is coming tomorrow to rid me of some of the excess celandine poppy, which as usual is occupying a good half of certain beds.
Packera aurea is starting to be a bit thuggish too but I don't care. I can dig it up and spread it around in sunny spots.
Another pretty thug:
A couple more daffodils for good measure:
And some pansies:
That's enough to be going on with. Happy Bloom Day!
