Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day

Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day seems to come around faster every month. This month I have many flowers and not much time to describe them, but here are the lists (links are to my photos).

From Tangled Branches North, we have:

And at Tangled Branches South:

April 2007 list, for comparison.

Thanks again Carol for another GBBD!

Lovely moody blueberry photo! Thanks for sharing the photos of Epimediums on your Picasa site. Milky Way looks great.

I liked the picassa album, too, Entangled - the viburnum is huge! Those little Ipheon are very pretty, too. Actually, everything is pretty.
Happy Blooming Day!

I really enjoyed the slideshow. You have taken some fantastic photos of the epimediums. I tried and tried but between the wind and their closeness to the ground, I gave up. We have a lot of the same things going right now, but our daffs are about done. That is the second blogger with tulip 'Tinka', it is lovely. Great job.

Oooh, that Epimedium 'Tabotan' is stunning! I think that other Epimedium is 'Purple Prince.' I have 'Lilafee' & from what I recall it has a bit of white on the main part. I will post a photo when in blooms.

WOW, what a lot of blooms you have...a lot of work to put this post together, but I sure appreciate seeing what's happening in your garden, as always.

How nice to see so much in flower in your garden Entangled. I see we have many blooms in common. :-)
Happy GBBD!

Ki: I was moaning over the overcast weather that day, but it seems to complement the blueberry flowers. I think I've got the unknown Epimediums correctly IDed now. The flowers on 'Milky Way' are large for an Epimedium, but they're quickly hidden by the developing foliage.

Annie: I didn't like that viburnum until it got big, and well, now it's too big for the space.

Frances: I think Epimediums are one of those plants where you have to get really close to the flowers to admire them. They're one of the few things that grow well in my dry woods.

MMD: 'Tambotan' is pretty but tiny. I'm not sure if it's supposed to be that way or if it's my crummy soil. Also, it doesn't look much like the picture in the Plant Delights catalog, from where I bought it.

I have 'Lilafee' and 'Purple Prince' planted fairly close together, and one day a few weeks ago I found the labels lying on the ground next to each other, but not next to the plants. Had to be the squirrels. And I need sturdier labels.

Jodi, Carol & Yolanda: Thanks! I need the encouragement to keep at it some days.

I giggled at your tag: "Pansy I can't believe I lost the tag already." Sounds like a few plants that I have share that name... :)

By the way, are your 'Geranium' narcissus very fragrant? I planted some this year because one of my nursery coworkers said that she loves the scent... so I'm curious.

Blackswamp Girl: Geez, I know I saved that pansy label, but I have no idea where I put it. I just planted the things a couple of weeks ago too.

The 'Geranium' narcissus has a sweet scent, but not overpowering. I'd call it a light, clean, sweet scent as opposed to some of the heavy, cloying, sweet scents. Let me know what you think when yours bloom.
