Garden Bloggers Bloom Day - March 2009

Finally some sun this afternoon! A lot of things are on the verge of blooming, and everything's a bit beat down by the rain, but:

A bee getting the end of the mountain laurel blooms.


Purple trailing lantana has enlarged its footprint over the years.


Sweet smelling alyssum attracts a visitor.


Okay, geraniums might be trite, but I love them.


The last of the pear tree blossoms; this tree is actually the neighbor's behind me, but a pear or two always seem to hang over the fence into my yard.


More borrowed landscape. This tree is between my house and the one next door, and I have no idea what it is. Scrawny tree, wisteria-like blooms.


More freesia. I need to pick some of these this afternoon.

It does look pretty in your garden. So many pretty white flowers.

I like the pic of the bee on the Mountain Laurel blooms. Very nice.

The tree with the white blooms looks like a Honey Locust.

In keeping with Carol's request that we comment on the posts before & after ours, here I am at your blog. Love the mountain laurel, just love it. I'm going looking for one if I can figure out where to shoehorn it into my corner of Katy!

Cindy again: I should have specified that Carol posted today at May Dreams Gardens about the huge number of comments she'd gotten on Bloom Day and made a request of her readers. http://maydreamsgardens.blogspot.com/2009/03/may-all-your-comments-mulitply-as.html
