Many thanks, as always, to Carol of May Dreams Gardens for creating and hosting this monthly event in the world of garden blogging.
Many of you read my recent whine about feeling like my yard looks just like the local Whataburger, so I set out today to prove myself wrong. With this bloom from a passalong rose from Lori/Gardener of Good and Evil, I think I achieved that!
Double Delight Rose is gorgeous, with a scent to match.
The Primrose Jasmine is at its peak.
The Mock Orange is just beginning. It will probably peak next week, especially if we get the “promised” rain in the forecast.
I didn’t even know that this recently planted Pittisporum bloomed, but it was covered with buds a week ago and these sweet, light yellow blooms have a fragrant scent to boot.
And I’m still loving my Double Ranunculus. It is going strong, with more buds to follow. These were bulbs picked up on a whim at Barton Springs Nursery last fall.
This most recent bloom on the same plant, though, is a single form.
This is my latest Ivy Geranium, a winter hardy geranium if I protect it from cold.
Another look at Double Delight from the front.
I finally got a decent photo of the bulbine.
The Abutilon is blooming. I love the variegated leaves with the busy, veined blooms.
And yet another Ivy Geranium. I love how you can see a bloom through the sheer curtains of the gazebo.
The Byzantine Gladiolus, an indulgence purchase from Southern Bulbs. Great color, aren’t they?
Coral Nymph Salvia Cocciniea. Molly Ivans is blooming in the front yard as well.
White Salvia Greggii, Pink Sunburst Canna, and The Flash peeking at me.
The Bottlebrush is just about to burst into blooms all over. I’m anxiously awaiting that, it’s a sight to see every spring.
Spotted Dead Nettle with Impatiens; a nice shade combo in a container.
A close-up of the Gladiolus.
Verbena is blooming in several colors now.
And this newly blooming plant just popped up as I was strolling through the garden taking pictures.
Other blooms are a kolanchoe, an aloe, ice plant, ajuga, red salvia, pink salvia, purple heart, and society garlic, bicolor Iris and butterfly Iris are just beginning.
