Back in January I could only offer one bloom, but this month I reluctantly picked everything that was blooming. Though I would have rather showed you the blooms in place, a very cold rain was falling this morning, yet again. Below on a bed of variegated Persian ivy (Hedera colchica 'Sulphur Heart') I have my first hellebore bloom of the season, my first snowdrop (Galanthus sp.), one of many Edgeworthia chrysantha blossoms about to open, an unnamed Viola, and a bloom from my Mahonia x 'Winter Sun' still blooming since January's Bloom Day.
If you would like to see what other garden bloggers might have to offer for the month, than you should visit Carol, who I guarantee is not the only gardener dreaming of May.
(BTW, check back with me next week sometime, despite the weather, or because of it, I will be launching this year's Winter Walk-Off. I hope you can all join.)
