Since today is the 15th, the garden bloggers have Garden Blogger's Bloom Day. This is hosted by Carol over at May Dreams Garden I am late in getting my blooms posted today. I am number 83! If you want to see what blooming around the world today.. go check out her post.
As you can see, my garden is starting to fill in. I have a lot of Sedum sarmentosum, otherwise called Stringy stonecrop. It fills in the bare spots and I treat it like a weedy groundcover. As the season continues it will get brighter yellow. The bermuda is starting to get a bit greener. I love a bermuda lawn in the winter, you can tell where the weeds are!! The Alyssum saxatile 'Golden Flourish' is just starting to bloom and the Wallflower Erysimum species is getting brighter and fuller yellow every day. The Isla Gold Tansy is turning yellower as the season progresses as well. Yellow Pansies round out the front yellow area.
Jane is still blooming. This Magnolia will continue to bloom off and on through out the spring and a little in the early summer. What a gal!!
The portion of the lilac bush, Syringa vulgaris, that the vole didn't eat is now blooming. It has not been a consistent bloomer...perhaps the threat of death caused her to put forth more blooms!
The Wallflower getting taller every day!
I have a variegated ground cover in a pot that can be invasive-- so in the pot he will stay. I didn't know he had a bloom. Glechoma hederacea "Variegated Ground Ivy" is in a container with three Gaura.
Here is this year's photo of my header bloom...an unknown as yet Narcissus. I have sent the photo to Brent and Becky and asked for a name. Will keep you updated.
And my last one for today will be the Christmas cactus that is blooming in my dining room. Since these Schlumbergera Bridgesii are photo sensitive and need specific light and dark periods to bloom, I think this one is a little mixed up since it has been in the dining room all the time. It is pretty though........ Happy Bloom Day!!!
