I admit that I took these pictures yesterday. Rain was expected for this morning and soggy it is! I faced a bit of a challenge this month getting photos of of plants in my garden that are in bloom. My garden is long on potential but a few subtle plants offered a hint of blossom. First I included this snap of a hardy cyclamen only because I am always surprised to see it return.
My skimmia japonica is showing berrys and can't be counted in the GBBD but it is pretty this time of year.
I planted this sarcococca last year; it's a young plant but it is in bloom!
My helleborus foetidus should have bloomed by now. Its buds are waiting for a warm suuny day.
Finally, one of my andromedas (cultivar unknown) has a single open bud, in the center of the photo.
I enjoyed taking the time to savor these subtle beauties as I await more flashy blooms next month.
Happy Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day all. I look forward to visiting your gardens today.
