Pink, green, white, and black are the classic Preppy colors and also the predominant colors of my mid-spring garden. Here are just a few of my favorites that are now flowering for this month's Garden Blogger Bloom Day. (Click on the pics to see at a larger size.) From top to bottom: bleeding heart, lily of the valley, PJM rhododendron, 'Angelique' tulip, pink hellebore, pot of pansies and 'Fragrant Rose' daffodils, variegated foliage 'China Town' tulip*, 'Spring Green tulip, Japanese barberry, white hellebore, and 'Black Parrot' tulip open plus closed.
BTW, Is it just me or does it seem like EVERYTHING has burst into blooom at the same time here in the Washington, DC region. My lilacs, crabapple tree, dogwood, Carolina jasmine vine, Lily of the Valley, etc. all seem to have jumped a month ahead of time. What will be left for late spring to look forward to?
What's blooming in your garden?
