Here we are at the middle of the month, when Garden Bloggers
show off what is blooming in their gardens.
There's not much blooming here at Patchwork Garden. But, here goes.
Above is Mealy Blue Sage, Salvia farinacea. It's not usually this early here,
but maybe our mild winter sped it up.
This is the third year for this Silver Bush Germander, Teucrium fruticans,
and, it's the first time it's bloomed. I like those little blue flowers.
Is this the year it 'leaps'?
You know the old garden saying..
First year sleeps
Second year creeps
Third year leaps.
We need some leaping plants, around here.
The Primrose Jasmine, Jasminum mesnyi, is still going strong.
I love those sunny little blooms.
This red Autumn Sage, Salvia greggii, is blooming nicely.
It got missed, when I cut back all the others. Now, I just can't cut it back until it finishes blooming.
I need some blooms....
I'm still loving this red-blooming Strawberry. The red bloom and those glossy dark leaves are great.
And, we get the bonus of fruit. This is our first one. Mr. P and I will have to share this one.
Over in the Veggie Garden, the Sugar Snap Peas are blooming and putting on some peas...finally.
Doesn't that pretty little bloom look like a Holly Hobby bonnet?
This is the first time we've had a bloom on the Red Yucca, Hesperole parviflora.
Somehow, I was able to fool the deer, with this tomato cage wrapped in deer mesh.
This is not a true Yucca. But, that's what we call it.
The deer might munch a bit on the ends of the 'leaves'. But, mostly leave it alone.
But, they love the blooms...of all Yuccas.
I love it too. So, I'm glad they've left this one alone....for now.
Last, but certainly not least...the Violas are still blooming nicely.
The Pansies have some blooms, but have slowed down. Maybe it's this warm weather.
So, that's what's blooming here.
Be sure to visit Carol at May Dreams Garden,
for more beautiful blooming gardens.
Check back in tomorrow for
