Garden Bloggers Bloom Day April 2012

ok, - so I missed the 15th, - but the sun is shining this morning, so i've been out in my garden where there is loads flowering.

This Kerria is usually only just coming into bud at this time, - but this year, it's been flowering its socks off for weeks. I'm often asked to design borders without the colour yellow, - but I love this splash of spring cheer.

i've got loads of Tulips in flower, - but they're in their 3rd year, so not as good as they have been in the past

The primroses though have increased in size, and this one looked great with the morning sun on it. (next to a Heuchera)

A lot of my daffodils are already over, - but these Thalia, look great paired with the blue flowers and silver variagated foliage of the Brunnera Jack frost

The white and pink Dicentras (bleeding hearts) are doing well, - although they'd have benefitted from a bit more rain over the winter

The only flower i'm slightly worried about is my Pot grown Minarette Apple Tree, - which is looking wonderful in bud, but is way ahead of the other apple trees in mine and my neighbours gardens, so I may have to do a bee impression again.

Thanks as always to Carol at May dream gardens for hosting this tour of what's blooming in different places in the world.- Here's to more April flowers.
