So what's blooming in our garden today?
The pink ones are blooming, the white ones to the right will pop soon.
Summer Snowflake, Leucojum aestivum
These first emerged last year (spring 2009) with the rest of my bulbs. I was very surprised to see them growing again, as most of my bulbs rotted (gardening is trial and error, right?) and I dug them out and now have blueberry bushes growing where the bulbs used to be. I love these little bells with their green dots. There are some neighbors down the street that have a huge clump of these growing around their mailbox. So pretty!
And they coordinate with the blueberry blossoms perfectly!
Finally, we used to have a bunch of nice thick, tall spruce trees near our deck that provided a lot of privacy, but the blizzards this past winter knocked down 5 of them. We now have a gaping hole and an unobstructed view into our neighbor's yard. He's got some fiery red bushes, not sure what they are, but I'm glad I see that as opposed to a bunch of appliances on cinder blocks. ;)
Happy Bloom Day!!
