The stars must be aligned! Not only did I remember bloom day but I had the time to do something about it! I took a quick trip around the garden to show you a few of my favorite things!
I freaking love this plant and now is its time to shine! Careful, this baby is pretty but dangerous!
I had to dig for the tag for this beauty I found a few years ago at Hortlandia and discovered it is somehow connected to the now defunct Berry B. Garden. I’d never heard of it before so I’m looking forward to doing little digging!
FINALLY! I’ve managed to keep a few of these alive! I love Euphorbia rigida but it seems to hate my garden.
Thankfully the slugs haven’t ravaged the leaves on this yet!
It’s taken a few years for my epimediums to get established in my shade garden and they are inspiring me to add more! They are perfect for dry shade!
I feel like I’m cheating a bit adding this clematis I bought at Joy Creek this year but it’s so darn pretty!
The wind and rain has taken a toll on my poor magnolia but luckily it is a pretty prolific bloomer and I can always find a good flower!
The flowers of this pieris are lovely but the real star is the emerging foliage! Wowza!
My beautiful pulsatillas really don’t like this weather and they are struggling to pick themselves out of the dirt!
I’m so in love with this sweet little guy. Going to be picking up a few more this weekend!
I need ALL of these ALL over my garden!
I got a little cracked out over pulminaria a year or so ago and this spring they burst into the most beautiful bunches of color!
Every year winter does a number on my loropetalum and by spring I think this it’s dead. Clearly it is not and holy cow the flowers this year are insane.
And we end with my very favorites. My Grevillea ‘Neil Bell’ and Grevillea miqueliana have been blooming like gangbusters all winter and are still going strong!
My Grevillea juniperina ‘Molonglo’ is becoming a monster. At some point it’s going to need a major haircut but I’ll wait until the explosion of flowers subsides!
It’s been a while since I’ve contributed but thanks to Carol at May Dreams Gardens for sponsoring Garden Blogger’s Bloom Day!
