Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day, April 2020

Our World Tuesday and Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day
Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day is the 15th of each month.

The northeast corner of Mississippi, USA zone 7b

My Encore Azalea 'Autumn Royalty' blooms in the Spring, and then there is a repeat performance in the Autumn. This Spring it is totally covered with blooms!

Pink Dogwoods are small trees that bloom in the Spring, and produce berries for the birds in the Autumn.

Most of our Narcissus have finished blooming, but I have a clump of late-blooming ones.

Butterweed, Packera glabella, is a wildflower that can spread quickly and become a nuisance, but isn't it a wonderful cheerful color?

Kerria japonica 'Multiflora' is past its peak bloom time, but still pretty.

A shrub native to the southeastern United States, Red Buckeye, Aesculus pavia, has tubular red blooms that attract Hummingbirds. And it has been grown successfully outside of its native range.

A wildflower I rescued from the side of the road: Spiderwort.

My red climbing rose is blooming!

I have two Clematis vines. This purple one that is just beginning to open its buds and...

… a double white Clematis that is in full bloom.

Happy Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day!

  1. Hello, your blooms and images are gorgeous. I love the Clematis and the Multiflora is lovely. Take care, enjoy your day!

  2. Glorious blooms. I so love the wildflowers along the harbour here every year! Thank you for sharing this beauty!

  3. These are beautiful...and I'm imagining the scents that go with the gorgeous blooms!

  4. What beautiful flowers. My Massachusetts garden is just beginning to bloom to I love to see what i can look forward to.

  5. What a lovely collection of flowers. I really would like to add a buckeye to my garden. Such a wonderful plant.

  6. You are so far ahead of us! The Narcissus are just put at their prime here now along with the Scilla.

  7. Such pretty azaleas. They are iffy in my area. I had some for several years in containers, then one winter night it got too cold for them.

  8. I'm so envious of the Clematis, Lea - I don't have much luck with them. Happy GBBD!

  9. Wow Lea, your blooms are way earlier than out here out in the PNW.--Kerria has just started to bloom but everything else is budded up or just coming out of the ground

  10. The white clementis is gorgeous - the ones I see around here (upstate New York) are the purple type. I can envy the reblooming azaleas - one shot is what we get here. You brought a smile to my face, seeing all those blooms!

  11. Love those Azaleas. I need some here.

  12. Wow, that Azalea is incredible. Spring is in full force in your garden, and very beautiful!

  13. I never considered spiderwort as a wildflower. Lucky find for you on the roadside.

  14. Those clematis are startling.I always wanted to grow spiderwort probably one day when I will be able to find it in nurseries.Happy blooms day.

  15. Wonderful the flowers, ilove this Photos!
    Greetings Elke
