Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day

My bowl of pansies purchased over a month ago is still growing strong. This marks its second Garden Bloggers’ Bloom Day. Also still blooming, a few violets and the cute little Pencrebar daffodils. As noted in my Mother’s Day post, Poker primroses, Wood hyacinths, Old-Fashioned Bleeding Hearts (both red and white ones), lily-of-the-valley and my lilac are blooming. Of course, the biggest news was the first rose blossom of the year.

Pictures taken today:

Lunaria in both white and purple

After perusing other Garden Bloggers’ Bloom Days, my gardens seem sparse and my plant list miniscule. I’ll have to plant more.

I like that white lunaria - if it reseeds you may have a field of it for next May's bloom day, OldRoses.
Enjoy the fragrance, along with that of the lilacs.

Annie, I'm hoping it reseeds! Those are my favorite kinds of flowers. I always like where Nature plants them better than where I plants them.

Old Roses... Thanks for participating in Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day. Your flowers are pretty, don't worry about bare spots, we all have them! Just keep planting!

Thanks, Carol! One of the nice things I've discovered about being an empty-nester is that now I can spend money on the things I want, like my garden.
