Bloom Day: The Most Wonderful Time of the Year

two lilacs – one pink, one purple

Move over, Santa! Spring is in full swing and every bird is singing with joy! If I weren’t tied to this desk, doing our April issue layout, I’d be outside twirling away madly like Maria in the Austrian hills.


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 few bad wind/thunderstorms this past week, but today it is sunny and calm,

In my garden, I have a multitude of blooms. Here is my list of what is in flower today:

– Carolina Jasmine
– Corydalis – yellow and purple
– Redbud Tree
– Lilacs
– Primroses
– Violas
