Hello and welcome to Garden Bloggers Bloom day where gardeners around the globe post what is blooming in their gardens. The garden is in bloom and spring has sprung.   It has also been hot and dry and am hoping that we get some rain soon.  There had been some light showers but not enough to make an impression.  
To see more blooming gardens please go over to Carol at may dreams gardens. Have a great week gardening!

 It is spring at the Rustic Bajan Garden. The days are becoming hot again even though we have been getting some scattered showers.  Those of you in the UK my sympathies about the Beast from the East.  Those of you in to in the great North fear not Spring will be soon here, even though we are enjoying the cool nights you have been sending us.  To all gardening folks happy gardening!
