Garden Bloggers Bloom Day (Mar '09)

Well, as many of you already know, May Dreams Gardens hosts Garden Bloggers Bloom Day on the 15th of each month; And if you read *this* blog, you may *also* know that I missed the opportunity to participate last month ('cause I simply forgot!), but was bound-and-determined to play along this month. But, I forgot that the 15th was a Sunday this month, and because I don't usually venture into BlogLand on the weekends, I am - not unusually - late. So, if you will all permit me my delay, I will post my entry, post haste!

Although, truth be told, while we *did* spend a good deal of time in the garden this past weekend - the mister mowed the lawn and trimmed the banana trees, while I cleaned out a flowerbed or two - and many shades of green can be found peeking out from various corners, we have very little actually "blooming", as of yet.

Along with the hot pink azaleas that I featured in today's early post...I noticed this lone impatiens trying to revive itself for the new blooming season.

There are also wild blackberries that are 'blooming' along my garden path; interesting little flowers...

And, of course, I would be remiss if I didn't mention my FAVORITE Bloom of the Day:

Our Key Lime tree!! Finally, after three years, it is blooming!! I'm so excited - can you tell?!

Youhave a Key Lime Tree? I lust after one of those!

Mo said...

LoL..yes, I *do* have one, but it hasn't produced a single fruit in its entire three year existence! But - I'm hoping that THIS is the year!! (wish me luck...)

Have a great week, and thanks for stoppin' in!

A Key Lime blossom!!! Wow! I'm impressed. Unfortunately, I'd have to have an orangery to grow citrus trees here at the foot of the Rockies in Colorado.

Mo said...

Let me tell ya, Fran, I am impressed too, I gotta say! LoL...I hail originally from the Allegheny hills up in W. Pa., so having citrus trees in my very own yard is wonderful! Now, if ever we get FRUIT on them...I won't know how to act!! LoL

Hope you have a great week left ahead, and a wonderful weekend to end it with!
