Garden Blogger's Bloom Day - April 2010

Welcome to my show for Garden Blogger's Bloom Day  I do not have a lot blooming today in the garden. The Bloodroot and Hepatica I showed you the other day but the Forsythia has been in flower for a week.


There are only two King Alfred Daffodils in bloom, sad case. But others have green shots showing.



The Hellebores have quite a display.



The Scilla have self seeded around the garden and are giving a lovely blue showing.



Be sure to check what other garden bloggers have blooming in their garden.

Forsythia has always been my favorite spring flowering bush. You're lucky to have one.

Your mention of bloodroot made my heart go pitter patter. I luv them so much. We had some that got covered over with dirt during a landscape project and they never returned. I'm crazy about them. I'll go read your previous post about them.

My first visit to your blog. I enjoyed it.

Well it is patently obvious that Ontario is way behind the Ozarks as far as spring development goes! My forsythia are DONE.

Still, living as far north as you do, spring has got to be a big excitement. I remember how it was when I lived in Fairbanks AK. . .

Thanks for sharing with us, and for visiting my blog.

Outstanding photos! I love the scilla and have wanted to plant more of it. It is always so dependable.

It's coming right along!

I'm glad to see some spring blooms in your garden! I enjoy the scilla in my garden too. It is slowly spreading.

Anyone who can take a good picture of a forsythia is a master in my book. I have tried for years and deleted them all :-) And the scilla portrait is classy as well.
Nice to meet you.

Enjoyed my visit round your April garden. What a beautiful hellebore :)

Iris said...

Truly beautiful photos of lovely blooms! I'm unfamiliar with Scilla: I love it's blue color and am always looking for blue/purple blooms. Does it require lots of water and cool weather?

Bernie said...

Gorgeous blooms ... I really loved the scilla and the close-up of the hellebore.

It's still early spring in your garden of threads, but bet the flowers last longer than they do in Texas - our daffodils come and go too quickly. Love the blue scilla!

Great photos Jen.
Look for a serviceberry 'Autumn Brilliance' at any of the big nurseries. We paid big bucks for a 7 yr old tree but a smaller one is fine too - as is the one out front.

I love the scilla too. We don't grow it much here because it's so hot. But I had some in another house, and now I miss it!
Thanks!

You've featured some of my favorite spring bloomers--nothing like daffodils and hellebores to welcome in spring! This has been a great year for forsythia, too. Thanks for stopping by my blog and Happy Bloom Day!

Lovely shot of the Scilla. I love the color and must try it here. Especially beautiful with the sun shining through the petals -- it reminds me of the blue stained glass in some of the French cathedrals.

Iris said...

Thanks so much for all that Scilla info! Will look for those bulbs next fall.

Carolyn said...

Great shots of your blooming beauties! It is so nice to see color starting in the garden.

great photos of your blooms for GBBD.

What beautiful pictures. I love the closeups. I had no idea that scilla would self seed, I've always thought they were cute flowers.

Hi and thanks for visiting my blog this week. What beautiful photos! I love the scilla, sadly mine didn't come back this year, I love them in with tete-a-tetes.
