I still have two more blog posts to write from my weekend in Sacramento, but this is Bloom Day and that comes first.
April is usually an exciting month in my garden. Not this April.
It was kind of exciting when the skipper climbed inside the iris for a drink while I was standing there with my camera.
It's kind of exciting to see the Bartlettina start to flower.
There's pretty much nothing exciting about 2 nasturtium flowers.
Raspberry flowers are exciting so close up, but not as exciting as picking actual raspberries.
Being lightly scented, apple flowers are only marginally more exciting than raspberry flowers.
The huge, glorious Fremontodendron we saw in the cemetery last weekend renders my little sapling totally unexciting.
The very few wildflowers we have blooming right only seem to emphasize how very few wildflowers we have blooming right now.
The excitement surrounding
Fuchsia fulgens would be greatly increased by having tons of flowers instead of a mere half-dozen at the end of one stem.
Okay, it's pretty exciting to think we'll soon have four poppy flowers on one plant, especially because we have four more poppy plants.
The cineraria would've been more exciting if it had retained some of the dramatic, electric blues it's known to have and not reverted back to the generic magenta.
And finally, the Triteleia bulbs would have been more exciting if any one of them had sent up more than one umbel. But noooo.
I hope your Bloom Day was more exciting than mine. If not, perhaps you found something more exciting at May Dreams.
