It's already time for Garden Bloggers Bloom Day. I find that I start looking through my gardens days ahead to see what might be in bloom. The fun part is I still find more the day I take my pictures along with signs of what will be blooming soon. Lots of flower buds appearing overnight right now.
Here is brunnera, I don't know the variety, but love the forget-me-not looking flowers.
I finally was able to get this identified, it's leucojum 'Snowflake'. Thanks to all of you who helped me the day I posted another one of these blooms. I think I need to add more since there are only a few that came up. I don't even remember planting them.
Ribes sanguineum I know I've posted pictures of it quite a few times, but this is a new picture of a flower all the way open.
White vinca minor
Water Hawthorn (aponogeton distachyus). Lots of blooms on this now, they look so pretty floating on the water. I still haven't gotten close enough to see if they smell like vanilla.
The weeping cherry tree is in full bloom. I love how the petals look like snow on the ground below it.
Daphne x transatlantica 'Summer Ice' This one is hard to photograph, it never looks as good in a picture as it does in person.
Clematis armandii Still not in full bloom and the flowers are about half of their normal size. Maybe next year...
Camellia japonica 'Kumasaka' Lots of blooms finally opened, although there are still quite a few buds.
Pieris japonica 'Purity' It's first year in bloom in my garden, I can't wait until it's larger and even more showy.
