Garden Bloggers Bloom Day
Lots of blooms here in Southeast, MO USA
The wind and rain have taken their toll on the daffodils and tulips. Still, I have gazillions. And as delicate as they look, they have taken this cold wet weather and still stand proud.
The show stopper is the Doubletake Scarlet Storm Quince. Just came out last year. I bought two. The survived the winter. The head gardener came through and cut the other one, off at the ground.
Still, I love this flower. It is such a clear red and lasts longer than most spring blooms.
The wind blew the peach blossoms of the tree pretty quick and I was not fast enough with the camera. So, I am sorry that I couldn’t share all those pink peach blossoms.
Yesterday. I ran out to take this photo. I am glad I did. There are probably half the blooms this morning.
The tulips are scarce this year. Was it the severe cold or is it just too early?
And finally, one more time for the quince. The crowd goes wild! It is a small shrub and could fit into most any sunny garden.
