Garden Bloggers’ Bloom Day- April ‘09

 

I can’t believe it is the 15th already! So much is going on in the garden. I can’t wait to see what is blooming in all your gardens as well.

To start, the dwarf snapdragon I started in hopes to get blooms in March (or was it late February?) are finally blooming! I planted out the others, along with the mystery plant in the garden, but I left the big beautiful one in the greenhouse.

The Bleeding Heart is doing well. I have to look back at my records, but I think it’s early-

 

Now that the plum tree is leafing out and its wonderful smell left the cherry tree is now in full bloom. After the wind and hail we had yesterday (blah!) I’m surprised that there are any blooms left!

 

The very front bed has some tulips looking lovely- not to mention the daffs. Again, after the weather we had yesterday, I’m surprised they are still in one piece.

 

The tomato I planted out a while ago still has blooms on it. Our weather is supposed to be warming up quite a bit so I will take the plastic off so the bees can get to it. I’ve been tapping the stem to do their job until then :).

 

There are so many things- Camellia, tulips, grape hyacinth, more daffs. Things are really starting to wake up in my garden. Now I’m off to go check out your gardens!

Don’t forget to visit Carol at May Dreams Gardens and check out all the beautiful garden blooms!

Happy Gardening,

Tessa
