April Garden Bloggers Bloom…Day

Life reached the height of busyness this month. Fun travel, work travel, allergies, and gardening have been all consuming. Now, back to a little blogging. Here is what was blooming in my garden on the official Garden Bloggers Bloom Day (the 15th of every month).

  1. Beautiful garden. I need to start chronicling what's blooming in mine every month too.
    Just to let you know, the unknown ground cover is a type of violet.

  3. I think the Unknown Groundcover is Australian Violet. It's been recommended to me lately as a hardy, attractive groundcover.

  4. Hey Laurie, thanks for the id. I've had the violet for about a year now and it is doing quite well.
