We don't got no stinkin' blooms!
All we got here is rain. Rain and mud.

I am sick of this pluvial plenitude. When we do get the occasional hour or so reprieve from rain, I feel the need to rush out there ("Quick! Grab the secateurs!" yells my Inner Garden General) and mow down and clean up winter's old baggage. The result, after months of inactivity, is feeling for several days like I've been hit by a truck, with muscle aches where I didn't realize I had muscles. I swear, the only activity harder on the human body than gardening is professional sports.
But I do have some blooms, and I decided to risk getting the camera wet yesterday so I could capture some photos.
But first, the greenhouse:
|Begonia 'Baby Dress' -- grown for its foliage, but its dainty flowers are cute too|
|Old lady cactus' tiny pink flowers|
And out in the garden:
I hope you have a lovely, dry, bloom-filled Garden Bloggers Bloom Day, wherever you are! GBBD is hosted by Carol at May Dream Gardens on the fifteenth of every month. Check out her post here.
