Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day

In this first photo left to right: dogwood not yet in bloom, camellia, redbud, another camellia and in the foreground, loropetalum.

White azaleas are blooming, tumbling down the slope. Pink azaleas will follow in a week or two, some already show color. The daffodils are late because they were planted this year.

Daffodils including Ice Wings and Sailboat as seen through loropetalum branches in bloom. The structure is my stick house where sweet peas are not yet in bloom on the near side.

It was hard to choose just three to show, so I tried to get the most bloom for the space in broad views rather than close up. The sidebar has a sampling of this year's daffodils. Some have finished; Thalia and Hawera are yet to bloom. Hyacinths are in posts farther down; China Pink and Delft Blue, planted late are not yet open.

  1. I love the broad views, it really shows what the garden looks like, what spring looks like.

    Thanks for joining in for Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day

  2. I saw white azaleas here in the neighborhood today, too. None of the reds and pinks yet, though. Love your hyacinths - mine are all planted last fall, so I am looking forward to divisions.

  3. Beautiful blooms and love your stick house! You are quite a bit ahead of us in southeast TN, maybe one or two zones higher, we are 7? Thanks for naming the daffs, we have an old one that came with our property that has been blooming for several weeks, a full month ahead of our named ones except for jetfire, that we would love to know the name of. Your garden looks lovely.

  4. I'm very glad to see the long views, which give an idea of your garden overall. I see you have plenty of space and it all looks beautiful! I love the color of the loropetalum...gorgeous!
    It's so wonderful to see your daffs bobbing their cheery heads :)
    I'll look forward to seeing your sweet peas blooming in the stick house. How creative!
