It's impossible to share blooms with you these days without also sharing pollen. Our air is yellow with the pollen of our many pine and oak trees. You'll be able to see a dusting of it on some of these blossoms.
|The 'Mabel Bryan' camellia is in full bloom.|
|The 'Climax' blueberry is also full of its bell-shaped blossoms.|
|This little pink allium is just beginning to bloom.|
|The ancient azalea in my backyard has just begun to open its flowers to the world.|
|'Spring Bouquet' viburnum is blooming.|
|The primrose has a very long blooming season.|
|Carolina Jessamine lights up the yard with sunshine even on cloudy days.|
|The little violas that have bloomed all winter continue blooming as spring approaches.|
|This is 'Peggy Martin' rose. Isn't she pretty?|
|Finally, it is St. Patrick's Day, so let's end on a sort of shamrocky note. Well, faux shamrock anyway. This is the wild oxalis that invades flower beds all over my garden, but I tolerate it since it's such a pretty little invader.|
Happy St. Patrick's Day, happy almost spring, and happy belated Bloom Day. I hope your garden is bringing you joy.
