Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day - April 2013

The snow drops have come and gone, but all the hellebores have started their show - along with the little Fox's Grape frittilary, and very earliest of the species tulips!

And the hellebores are certainly putting on a show. I didn't get great pictures of the Lenten Roses that are in the backyard, because they're so shaded in the evenings, but you can still tell that this single plant is covered in blooms:

Inside the house, the last flower stalk on Miltassia Charles M Fitch 'Izumi' is just finishing its show. I brought it outside for a photo op in the fading evening sun, to show off its last blooms:

Unfortunately, the only other things in bloom around here are the weeds! But I have a couple of cool foliage pics from the cleaned-up areas of the front yard for tomorrow, so stay tuned for those tomorrow.

And to check out what else is blooming all over the world, as always... visit Carol's April 2013 GBBD Post at May Dreams Gardens!

You have some nice clumps of hellebores. Mine are starting to go to seed already. Not much blooming here. I notice that you have put your new name on your blog. :) Happy GBBD.

Splendid blooms. Is it not just wonderful to come home to an emerging garden.

You have such a nice spring going! LOVE the orchid, I've had that one on my watch list for awhile now. If my phal reblooms I'll take the success as a sign and buy more orchids :)

Your Helleborus are so full of blooms. They look great. Mine are under a willow, so they get a fair amount of flowers, but not as many as that.
