Bloomday has been sunny and warm but when I took the photos this morning everything was wet; wet from the rain yesterday and from the frost that enveloped the garden in the latter part of the night. As before Christmas the temperature seems to have only fallen to zero or perhaps one degree below.
There are still more ‘summer flowers’ than those I would prefer to be enjoying, i.e. those blooms that signal spring is on the way.
Monday I saw the first Crocus open in the sun in the garden, today they were closed because it was early but they are fully opening their hearts to the sun now.
Click on the Crocus image above to see everything blooming in My Hesperides Garden today.
One winter plant I forgot to include was Viburnum tinus but that flowers over such a long period I won’t forget that it was flowering today.
Visit Carol at MayDreams to find what’s blooming in gardens all over the world, from true summer gardens to some that are very wintery indeed. Why not join in too, it’s a great way of keeping a record of what’s flowering every 15th of the month.
