15 May Garden Bloggers Bloom Day – May 2011
We are very happy here at Blue heron Landscapes to be able to join in the Bloom Day fun once again! It’s been a long cold rainy spring here in the northeast, so there hasn’t been much to crow about until now. Enjoy!
The Daffodils (Narcissus cvs.) have just finished for the season. I love the delicate hues of this one, although I can’t remember its name.
I shared this Korean Azalea (Rhododendron yedoense var. poukanense) on Wordless Wednesday, but it sure is worth another look.
Clematis ‘Pink Flamingo’ is not your ordinary Clematis!
The unusual, but very pretty blossoms of our Horse Chestnut (Aesculus hippocastanum).
An unknown cultivar, this Azalea (Rhododendron Hybrid) greats visitors with a brilliant show each spring.
Rhododendron carolinianum, understated beauty!
Perhaps my favorite naturalizing tree, the clean white bracts of a White Dogwood (Cornus florida).
Another unknown Azalea (Rhododendron Hybrid) we inherited when we bought the house. When this one is in bloom, the back room glows pink as the sunlight reflects off its impressive display!
A welcome volunteer, this native Columbine (Aquilegia canadensis) graces our deck each spring!
As always, many thanks to Carol at May Dreams Gardens for creating and hosting Garden Bloggers Bloom Day, please visit her site to see what’s blooming elsewhere!
