Garden Blogger's Bloom Day - April 2013

This Garden Blogger's Bloom Day, finally has the garden alive and blooming.  We had a sudden warm up and the garden responded with lots of growth, buds and flowers.  My weeping cherry tree is in full flower and the bees are swarming all over it.  I have never seen so many different types of bees at one time on this tree. If you want to see what is happening in my garden, take a look at the photos of spring in my garden.

Signs of Spring

Last week, I walked the gardens and was thinking that spring would never come.  Then suddenly we had a warm up.

Have a great spring and as always "Happy Gardening".
