Bloom Day April 2013
April is the month when my garden turns the corner from the daintiness of the early spring to modest exuberance. Everything that is going to come up , has done so. It is hoped that there will be enough rain (at convenient times i.e. overnight or when I'm at the office) to postpone the hose dragging. As always, thanks to Carol at May Dreams for her stewardship of Bloomday. Allium 'Purple Sensation' . I must say I wish I'd planted more of these.They took over just as the tulips waned. Weigela variegata. Clematis 'Ramona' Always dependable Salvia 'May Night' . 'Golden Celebration' Not quite open..Verbena bonariensis. Euphorbia 'Ascot Rainbow' I planted this dwarf bearded Iris many years ago and have long since forgotten it's name. Echium gentianoides Deutzia gracilis 'Nikko'
