Bloom Day Bounty

Virginia Bluebells

It is Garden Blogger's Bloom Day again! On the 15th of each month, we gardeners with blogs share a few bloom photos from our gardens. 

Here in the Mid-Atlantic USA (USDA zone 7) on the DC-MD border, we had a continuation of winter until two days ago when spring sprung out and the birds sang and pollen rained down - now it is back to March weather today.

In my garden, I have a multitude of blooms. The Saucer Magnolia has dropped all its petals and the early Lilacs are just budding up. Here is my list of what is in flower today:

- Viola
- Violets
- Alyssum
- Scilla
- Veronica
- Hellebores
- Grape Hyacinth (Muscari)
- Daffodils
- Tulips
- Forsythia
- Virginia Bluebells
Spring Snowflake (Leucojum vernum)
- Weeping 'Higan' Cherry tree
- Redbud tree
- Peach 'White Column' tree
- Flowering Almond shrub
- PJM Rhododendrons

Looking at last year's Bloom Day list though, I believe we are about two weeks behind schedule.

So what is blooming today in YOUR garden?
