My first Garden Blogger Bloom Day was April last year. I didn't have many blooms at all, but my creeping phlox was blooming then and it doesn't even have any buds as of yet for this year.
I have a lot of daffodils in bloom right now in both the front and back yards. Today was pretty windy so it was difficult to get pictures of them.
Here is another picture of the scilla, that has started spreading under the Japanese maple. I really don't remember planting this but I'm very glad it's here.
The tulips will soon be blooming. I've never fertilized them, so I imagine a few of the bulbs will be duds.
The maple and pear trees are in bloom, and the birds here at Robin's Nesting Place are like flying flowers as they are sporting their colorful mating plumage.
I still have a few crocuses in bloom as well as a few fading irises.
I have a few things blooming indoors too. The African violet opened up just in time for April's Bloom day post.
The impatiens are blooming and whether there is more frost to come or not they have to go outside soon. We start warming back up tomorrow and I may just put them out on the front porch and start the hardening off process.
The gerbera daisies have bloomed throughout the winter. This month the red and yellow gerberas are blooming. I can't believe they lived through the winter. I'm very ready for them to go outside too. I'm ready to trade this indoor gardening for the more satisfying outdoor gardening.
I have ordered 3 cu yds of compost rich topsoil and it will be arriving in the morning. I'm feeling a little better today and hoping by tomorrow the headache and eye discomfort will be completely gone. I'm not sure that I will feel up to heavy labor but I plan to spend my day outdoors and enjoy the warmer weather. I look forward to stopping by Carol's May Dreams Garden Blog and seeing what everyone else has in bloom for April.
