Garden Bloggers Bloom Day April

I’m a little late for Garden Bloggers Bloom Day April.  But I’m still having jet lag from a very extended vacation that took me to Italy and Israel.

When I left, my garden was just beginning to show buds for the daffodils and my forsythia had sent out a few blooms.  Now six weeks later, the forsythia is almost entirely spent and only a few isolated blooms remain, and the daffodils are waning.  However my tulips are in full bloom and My other spring blooms are putting on a show, while late spring bloomers are beginning to show buds.  Take a look at some of what is blooming in my Zone 8 garden.
