March Garden Bloggers Bloom Day

This is my first 2012 Bloom Day post. As I was walking around the gardens to take pictures I was, as usual, surprised at how much is in bloom. We had a mild winter or what some might call a normal winter so many of my new plants that struggled through last summer had a chance to get better established.

My new front yard landscaping is doing well. This bloom day post will be the first ever post to feature plants from my front yard.

  2. I take cuttings here of Persian Shield every fall and root them inside for the next spring. and they also got flowers while on the window sill. Now, they are starting to 'purple up" again. Can't wait to start outdoors work.

  3. You are quite a bit ahead of me on your blooms. Love your blue eyed grass! And of course, your roses. Those blue irises are gorgeous!
