Garden Bloggers’ Bloom Day–April 15, 2014

For Upstate gardeners, and others in our region, it appears to be a matter of enjoying spring blooms while we can, as weather experts are predicting a hard freeze for tonight. Fingers crossed that the cloud cover moves out later than expected, thus improving conditions.

On this wet and windy day, here’s some of the best of what’s blooming in the ornamental garden…

Front garden including white & pink dogwood trees, azaleas, Spanish bluebells, Lenten roses, Japanese maple, and  Chocolate Chip ajuga.

    Marian, I love watching the progress of your garden. It gives me hope for my own garden. What lovely spring blooms!

    Azaleas already! Everything is so lovely, including Sweet Betsy. I just saw the trillium at the NC Botanical Garden and also a Carolina silver bell. Would it a nice tree for a small garden?

    I really love that Euphorbia too! The azaleas in the front garden provide a lovely splash of colour – it looks lovely under the dogwood tree. We’ve been predicted a freeze tonight too, so I will be covering a few seedlings and keeping my fingers crossed as well!
