Here is the Mid-Atlantic USA (USDA zone 7) on the DC-MD border, the past month has been a very wet and cold one. That is changing now though. The sun has emerged and we are due to jump straight to highs in the '90s by mid-week!
My garden has been growing very lushly with the English-like weather we have had. In bloom now in my garden are small trees like the Japanese Snowbell and Mock Orange, along with many newly acquired annuals from Alyssum to Fuchsia to Petunias.
The perennial flowers include the large, Dr. Seuss-like Alliums (pictured here) in both purple and white. There are many Irises blooming - Bearded, Water, and Japanese -- as well as roses everywhere from my mainstay Meidiland groundcovers to newly added David Austin selections.
Finally, my Peony shrubs are putting on a prolific show--providing lots of cut flowers for my indoor arranging fun.
So what is blooming in YOUR garden today?
