I must say that most of the early blooming bulbs have worn out what with so little rain and all the hot weather. Yet there are a few hangers on, like these grape hyacinths that are light blue that fades to white and the yellow narcissus. The Camassia and Dicentra formosa are just coming on.
The Serviceberry tree has gone over but the Silverbell tree is blooming nicely.
It is so difficult to get a blooming tree photo. Yes, you are seeing pink on this silverbell. This variety is named 'Rosy Ridge' and it does have a touch of rose in the little bells as you can see up close. No matter how you look at it it looks pretty to me.
You can see here the big red dogwood is all abloom. Behind you can see some of the Redbuds.
The Leatherleaf Viburnum is abloom. I just love these little pink and white blooms with little rays of yellow around the edges.
Another Viburnum is blooming too. This is the standard that I made from the parent plant I am pleased how it has come along.
A few tulips and narcissus along with old fashioned purple irises are looking good. The Irises aren't quite all out yet.
Virginia Blue Bells are abloom.
The pink Lily of the Valley started blooming before the white ones this year.
Today I found my first Iris Crisata blooming. It seems like mine are always the last to come into bloom. I don't mind just as long as they do bloom.
I could go on and on but I won't. I will just put a further listing at the bottom of this post for my reminder and your perusal. For those of you that want to see more blooms pop over to Carols May Dreams Garden to see what is blooming where this month.
