It's that wonderful day of the month in that wonderful month of the year, and the rabbits or whatever have been at their dastardly work, chewing buds and blooms off a few things you won't see in this Bloom Day Post.
They (rabbits) don't hop this high. At least not yet, so the baskets should be safe.
These babies have been blooming for a month now. I love old-fashioned bleeding hearts.
The lone surviving Anemone sylvestris bloom. This one is surrounded by surprise lily foliage, otherwise the varmints probably would have gotten it too.
They can't reach this fuchsia though, ha ha! This year I will get a photo of a hummingbird. They tease me relentlessly when I have the camera outside. When I don't they linger at the fuchsia a good long while.
I've always had white columbines. These were planted the first year I lived here.
Beautiful, tiny brunnera blooms. These are from Looking Glass.
The hellebore lost some blooms to critters, but some have survived. Last year this hellebore held on to its blooms until late fall. This spring two more hellebores were added to the garden.
Last but not least, the peas are budding!
Happy Bloom Day everyone, and thanks to Carol at May Dreams Gardens, in her glory in the marvelous month of May. Just two short weeks from today, I'll meet Carol and about 50 more garden bloggers when we gather in Chicago for the 2nd annual Garden Blogger's Spring Fling.
