April Bloom-O-Plenty

It's not hard to find blooms to share in April ..harder to edit out the rejects.


Rosa banksia lutea.





Silene uniflora.



Silene...perhaps some variation of kieskie, the tag on this plant was quite vague.


Deutzia gracilis 'Nikko' , the cute little egg shaped buds and crisp while flowers  make up for it's rather non- descript appearance for most of the year.



Echium  gentianoides , another I fear mine will never achieve the size and drama of the specimen in the display gardens at Annies , I am none the less thrilled that it made it through our 20 degree nights and I have blooms !




Borage and Euphorbia 'Ascot Rainbow' frolic together. Borage in fact will frolic with just about anything.



Unlabled geranium, from Robin Parer many years ago.



Weigela



What would spring be without an Iris or two?



Thanks to our hostess at May Dreams ...happy spring to all

  2. Great photography, I enjoyed looking at your blooms. I grow silene too but I lost the tag, and am so happy to have found its name here, thank you!
