Spring is wondrous! Even though we're still five days away from the official first day of spring, my garden is awakening from it's winter slumber.
Pink Crinum Lily
My roses were pruned very hard four weeks ago, so most are just setting buds now. Belinda's Dream is one of the few that are blooming now, she's to the left in photo...
Yangtze Daylilies have already begun, they're an early season bloomer - too early, as I haven't gotten all the foliage cleaned up yet.
This past Saturday was the Master Gardener's Spring festival for our area. My daughter bought me this lovely Passion Vine, I'm hoping it hosts lots of butterflies.
Here's a couple other roses just beginning to bloom, first , Iceberg Climber on top of the gazebo...
Next, a little drift rose. I believe next month will be the 'WOW' time for the roses in my gardens.
First Gerbera Daisy of the year.
Also, the first Desert Rose bloom.
I have a six Saucer Magnolias (M. x soulangeana) on the property, most blooming right now. Two are a different variety and are just beginning to color up.
These begonias are a favorite of mine, the flowers will eventually be carried on stems ranging from 12 to 18 inches.
Lots of Impatiens roaming around the shade beds.
Plans for tomorrow are to finish planting the vegetable garden and plant a cutting garden - mostly Zinnias, Tithonia, and Coneflower. I wish you all beautiful blooms, and a wondrous spring. To enjoy blooms from around the world, visit Carol at May Dreams Gardens.
