This month's Bloom Day finds my garden in full bounty. We have been getting fairly regular rains, mostly in the form of storms, but welcome just the same. The temperatures have been climbing and buds have been opening, and even with the long winter we had, things are still a little ahead of schedule. This spring I have added more to the garden, gaining ground from pulling some things out that out grew their space or that had died. Most of what I added have been annuals along with a few perennials and one or two shrubs. One of the perks of my job is coming across free samples from growers, and I can tell you that wholesale nurseries are bending over backwards to get garden centers to buy their plants. Many of them are slashing prices, composting unsold material and looking twice at what they grow. There are also quite a few who are no longer in business.
Let's move on to cheerier things and head down the garden path where there has been no lack of Bloom Day subject matter.
