Garden Blogger's Bloom Day - May 2011

This has been a good growing season for the garden this year. I had my concerns for the spring since we had been very dry last year. The plants are growing very well including all the weeds!

I have moved my tropical plants to the garden from the greenhouse. This is a Bougainvillea.

The Foam Flowers are blooming all over the garden.

The native plants are blooming like this Celandine Poppy.

I really look forward to the Virginia Bluebells blooming in the spring.

This lilac never had bloomed until I moved it last year.

The Weigelas have been loaded with flowers this year.

I hope you enjoyed the blooms and have a great Garden Blogger's Bloom Day!

Happy Gardening!
