GBBD April 2010
At last I have more than 3 or 4 blooms to include in this month’s Garden Blogger Bloom Day post. Spring is definitely here. A lot of colour in my garden at the moment is coming from various Primulas. I have a growing fascination with them and have realised that the number and variety in my garden is increasing. Many I have grown from seed but one or two I have bought. I am particularly pleased with the Primula Dark Rosaleen (above) which has bulked up nicely and I am considering dividing. But then I am also very pleased with my Primula Denticulata which I have grown from seed (see below).
Needless to say there is an awful lot of yellow in the garden from the wide range of Daffodils that I seem to have accumulated over recent years. Every year I buy some of a different variety and promise myself I will remember what they are but I never do. Here are two that I particularly like this year if only I knew what they are!
Other blooms out at the moment include my Camellia (below) and my Bergenia ‘Rosi Klose’ (below the Camellia) which is really flowering its socks off at the moment.
There are lots of other bulbs and spring flowers doing their bit to add to the colour at the moment including the ones below
I notice from last year’s April GBBD post that things were much further along this time last year. I have tulips in flower and bud on the Irises but its hardly surprising that things are behind given the rotten winter we have had this year.
