Today is the first Blooming Tuesday for 2010 over at Ms Green Thumb Jean's Blog. For the past two years I have joined her off and on to show off what is Blooming in my garden.
I live in Southern California and the weather has been in the 80s for the past week. I have a wonderful spring start for this year!
This is a great way to use an old pair of wash tubs on a stand! My Petunias love them!Here in California where it doesn't get that cold, we have trailing ice plant. This is called delosperma cooperi. It is a bright pink carpet of flowers. It is so pretty in spring time!
I also have it in bright orange too. It blooms all summer long, but only in the spring time it looks like a carpet of color. And at night all the flowers close up too!
Every spring I look forward to my Wisteria to bloom in my patio. They are only in bloom for about 3-4 weeks every year. The smell is outrageous!
The flowers are a beautiful lavender color and they are in foot long clusters!
All my daisy bushes are in bloom too.....Hey! Please don't eat the daisies!!
This yellow rose bush is called St Patrick's. It always has it's first blooms in March. (I guess that is why they call it St Patrick's?) The stems of each rose are really long and make great long stem roses. My Tulips are blooming throughout my garden too. I have a problem with my tulips because the gophers love them and I have to make sure they are planted somewhere where it doesn't get that much water during the summer months or the bulb will rot in the ground. This is a pretty white Clematis vine that blooms every spring and the fragrance is so wonderful!
The flowers are so pretty and all bunched up together
This is another pretty spring, sweet smelling vine bush, Yellow JasmineFor more pretty blooms, please go visit Ms Jean at Green Thumb Jean's Blog!
