Hello and welcome to GBBD where gardeners around the globe post what is blooming in their gardens. Yesterday we had a day of rain after a long dry spell.  It felt good! 
I have been trying to grow some Matthiolas aka night scented stocks  and I cant get them to bloom. I have lost several but these here are holding on. Anyone who has had experience growing these please drop me a line on how to get them to bloom. 
To see more blooming gardens please visit Carol at may dreams gardens
Have a great week folks!
