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!


  1. Magnifique ton jardin avec toutes ces couleurs

  2. Helen, what wonderful pictures of beautiful blooms (as usual). But you are a bit of a tease showing me that magnificent POD. From your description, does it object to dry conditions.


  3. What an amazing collection of perennials,that water apple blooms are breathtaking,seeing Amaryllis and Bottlebrush in blooms missing my spring time garden.
