Thanks to Carol at May Dreams Garden for hosting Garden Bloggers Bloom Day the 15th for each month.

Here is what’s blooming in my garden.

The Roses …

The Rise N Shine rose is especially happy since I moved it to a pot. It used to be shadowed by the Livin’ Easy rose where it succumbed to fungus and rarely bloomed.

The Lantana …

The Wildflower Meadow …

My back garden is dominated by the larkspur. I should thin it out to let other plants thrive, but they are so pretty I can’t bring myself to do it!

April 2014 Bloom Day

Rise N Shine

Rise N Shine

After two hail storms in a week and a dip into the 30s last night, I’m happy that anything is blooming at all. To show just what a crazy spring it’s been, I looked at last years bloom day pics and found all the same blooms for 3/15. I hope summer follows spring and is a month behind this year too. Wishful thinking!

Thanks to Carol from May Dreams for hosting Bloom Day.

Bloom Day 2/14

The garden is only a few weeks from some impressive blooms, but for now this will have to do.

My first bulb of the season – Hyacinth

Is it cheating if I just planted it this weekend? I couldn’t pass these up when I saw them at The Natural Gardener. They are very cold tender, but I’m ok with something this pretty being an annual.

Since I’m low on blooms this month, I’ll add my new yard art.

IMG_2252

Costco for under $40, hard to beat this price. I’ve been wanting one of these spinners for a while.

IMG_2250

Found this at “Antiques and Things” on 290W. If you’ve never stopped by it’s a great little place and he’s always got something new.

IMG_2245

I bought this bench there as well several months ago. We finally got around to painting it and puting it back together.

Painted to match the shutters.
