|Shade bed after the makeover|
|Primula japonica 'Miller's Crimson'|
|Primula veris 'Sunset Shades'|
|Both Podophyllums have produced their interesting maroon flowers, which will eventually turn into a fruit called a mayapple, with seeds for ants to spread throughout the bed.|
Elsewhere in the front garden:
|Lunaria annua (Honesty) a biennial, whose flowers are already making small, coin-shaped seedpods thsat give it the other common name of Money Plant|
|Geranium phaeum 'Samobor' with an early grass whose name escapes me|
|Erysimum 'Winter Sorbet', which I've used to underplant orange Edgeworthia chrysantha 'Akebono'|
In the back garden, there is still a lot of green. But there are a few flowers.
|Serviceberry flowering profusely|
|Geranium phaeum 'Samobor'|
Many of the spring ephemerals that I thought would not last till Bloom Day are actually still flowering, to my great delight. I won't show them off again, though. You can see them in this recent post.
Garden Bloggers Bloom Day is hosted by Carol Michel at May Dreams Gardens, on the 15th of every month. Bloggers all over the world leave links to their posts celebrating flowers. You can see her April post here.
