What's In Bloom?

On March 15th there was absolutely nothing in bloom, now on April 15th for Garden Blogger's Bloom Day, it seems that everything is in bloom. Amazing how the garden can change seemingly overnight. In addition to all my bulbs blooming during that 30 day window (daffodils, tulips, crocus, hyacinths and muscari), the Bradford Pear, Dogwood and Redbuds have all now flowered. Many shrubs have or are beginning to bloom, the Peonies have fresh new leaves and buds, and the Hostas are poking through. Honestly, I find the whole changeover from Winter to Spring to be rather miraculous.

How happy is spring? I think I had one crocus a month ago and now I'm exhausted from uploading pictures of all my blooms. Love your redbud!

I just wanted to thank you for stopping by my own Bloom Day post. You had mentioned the Lady Banks, they are hardy to the low teens so I am not sure they would handle your winters.
