|This one holds a secret. Can you see it? It's a little green treefrog tucked among its petals.|
|Another kind of amaryllis - the St. Joseph's lily.|
|Roses are also blooming in April. This is the 'Dortmund.'|
|Blackberries also are in bloom.|
|As are many daisies.|
|A few bluebonnets are still blooming.|
|And one or two pink bonnets are scattered among them.|
|'Tangerine Dream' crossvine is blooming, but for some reason the color just isn't as vibrant as it normally is.|
|I gave the yellow cestrum a serious haircut during the winter and it has come back strong, filled with blooms.|
|This tub of petunias next to my little fountain is a reseeded volunteer from a 'Laura Bush' plant that I planted in the garden years ago. Every year some volunteers come up around the garden, often in the most unexpected places.|
April begins our season of blooms for real, so it is a special pleasure to be a part of Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day this month. Thank you, Carol of May Dreams Gardens, for hosting us once again.
Happy Bloom Day to all!
