Garden Bloggers Bloom Day - April 2019

This bloom day began with a heavy veil of frost. Brrrrrrrr All of these brave flowers are looking mighty nice this morning. At least the sun is shining which makes me thing this cold spell won't last long. Today, the 15th,  is also supposedly our last frost date. Keep your fingers crossed because I sure am.








I guess I could have named this Bloom Day the Day of the daffodils. I seem to have quite a few blooming up a storm. The big yellow ones have stopped blooming for the most part.
If you look over here beyond the Spirea you can see that the Azalea is in full bloom now.
Those dark burgandy leaves really set off the azalea blooms.
There are a few other things blooming now. Like the Grape Hyacinths.
I even have a pink one but I forgot to take a picture of it.
They yellow Corydalis and Pulmonaria look pretty blooming together.
The Almond Bush is in full froth. When I went away 4 days ago it was just beginning to bud and when I returned I saw this. It made me so happy.
I hope you are happy with all your blooms this month. If you need some ideas for further planting schemes or if you are still buried in snow pop over to Carol's May Dreams Garden for a whole Linky full of fresh spring blooms.

  1. My fingers are duly crossed on your behalf! I love seeing your pretty daffodils, especially as mine are almost gone already. Dry winds and excessively warm temperatures can be almost as much of a Spring buzz kill as a late cold snap.

  2. Those sure are lovely daffs. Frost?!? :(

    You must be longing for warmer weather. May it arrive very soon.

  3. Our daffs are gone, and the tulips are on. Cold rain here is now slowing things down. Good. I don't like it when all the pretties go too fast.

  5. The almond is so pretty and I rarely see those. There was a huge one in Alabama in someone else's garden and it is the only one I ever remember seeing. I still have not tried growing pulmonaria.

  6. Hi Lisa, I have admired flowering almond in other gardens but have never had my own. They are so beautiful! I can see why it makes you so happy. This is a wonderful season, and I am glad you are experiencing such lovely spring blooms. April 15 is theoretically our last frost date too, but nights here as still a bit cool - down into the 40s some nights. I am not complaining. I want spring to last as long as possible before summer's heat and humidity arrive.

  11. Lovely muscari, Lisa! I've found mines yesterday starting off the snow, so brave guys.
    Your daffodils are pretty too, I think they look like little suns on the ground.
