April 2014 Bloom Day title

Spring is definitely here! There’s lots going on in my garden beds & it makes me so very happy.


April 2014 Bloom Day side yard
Top Left: Camellia. Top Right: The hellebore are past their peak, but are still adding nice color to our one area with shade. Bottom: Johnny Jump Ups. It appears the slugs have been enjoying them.



April 2014 Bloom Day front yard
Top Left: The flowering cherry tree is looking wonderfully pretty in pink. Top Right: Pansies in the wishing well. Bottom Left: English Daisies are blooming here & there. Bottom Right: The Red Crossbill’s that started hanging around last month are still here. And, I’m so very glad. I’ve enjoyed watching them. They never visit our bird feeders, but they do come in close to drink from the pond. This guy is waiting his turn for a drink in a newly flowering plum tree.
