Today is Garden Blogger Bloom Day, that day when Carol at May Dreams Gardens asks each of us to share what is blooming in our garden!
A very impressive cloudburst and other less torrential rain kept me out of the garden today so I was lucky once again to have some safety photos taken Saturday when I could have sworn it was just about spring. Above Tulbaghia fragrans is sending its sweet scent through the garden...it's the earliest blooming tulbaghia here.
Crocus bloom here and there; I need to add many more.
On the Wedding Arbor Clematis armandii is in bloom. I expected this plant to be much more vigorous but since it is alive and was my third attempt I guess I'll be happy. It shares the arbor with Rosa Flower Girl.
Iris reticulata Symphony is beginning to bloom, considerably later than the blue reticulatas.
An aloe blooms in a strawberry pot.
Another photo of Lavandula pinnata buchii. Seems like I have one every other month but I take a lot of pictures of this since it blooms most of the year, unlike any other lavender in the garden.
Iberis blooms in several places brightening up cloudy days.
Viburnumtinus Spring Bouquet has lovely clusters of pink tinged waxy flowers, not unlike...
this crassula .
Clumps of leucojum aestivum bloom, these are some of the later blooming spots in the garden.
Muscari in the back garden.
Geranium citrosa is sending out a few blooms in preparation for spring!
Other blooms in Davis for this late winter bloom day include:
Butterfly Blue scabiosa
Abutilon Pink Parasol
Rosa Lady Banks white
Camellia Chandleri Elegans
Camellia Jordan's Pride
Rosemary Tuscan Blue
Dwarf Carnation Evermore
Yellow Argyranthemum frutescens
And indoors a begonia blooms while waiting for nicer weather so it can go back outside.
