The sun was shining today when I went out to look for blooms for Garden Blogger Bloom Day, our monthly bloom sharing day originated by Carol at May Dreams Gardens. I knew I would find a few blooms since I had seen several varieties of bulbs blooming for the past week or so. But I was surprised to see the first crocuses of the year, luckily snuggled up close to the cyclamen I planned to photograph.
This ivy pelargonium is tucked up close to the house and has bloomed off and on this winter.
Near by, one of the dietes has also bloomed although none of the other fortnight lilies in the yard show signs of blooming.
I love Dwarf Carnation Evermore! It blooms almost year round and offers one bloom in time to make this month's list.
Grand Primo daffodils continue to bloom...
as do the leucojum in multiple places...
and a sweet little daffodil given to me by a friend several years ago has multiplied and joins in.
Garden peas have begun to bloom although they have lots more growing to do.
Anisodontea Hibiscus Bits blooms...but only on the sunny side of the plant!
Evergreen clematis Avalanche blooms on the wedding arbor.
Other blooms include camellia Chandleri Elegans, sweet allysum, and viburnum tinus.
