Welcome to Garden Bloggers’ Bloom Day for April 2022.
Here in my USDA Hardiness Zone 6a garden in central Indiana, we are enjoying—experiencing?—enduring?—a slow spring.
Slow is good in some respects. It gives everyone more time to enjoy the flowers, like these Epimediums, variety unknown.
I like to call them Fairy Wings, though most people call them Bishop’s Hats.
Elsewhere in the garden, the daffodils have been putting on a fine, lovely, and long show, and now the tulips are starting to make themselves known.
Hyacinths have also been blooming for quite some time, including this double pink variety called ‘Chestnut Flower’.
It’s an heirloom variety I purchased long ago from Old House Gardens. They say it goes back to 1880!
I’d show you more pictures, but truth be told, I almost forgot about bloom day so I didn’t take a bunch of pictures around the garden. I’ve been busy preparing for Easter, cleaning up the garden… stuff like that.
Thanks to Kathy at Washington Gardener for giving me a nudge to see if I was going to post.
It’s not too late to join in for bloom day, and it’s okay to be late, as you can see. And oh so easy. Post on your blog about the blooms in your garden on or around the 15th of the month, then come back here and leave a link in the Mr. Linky widget and a comment to let us know what you have waiting for us.
And as always, “We can have flowers nearly every month of the year.” ~ Elizabeth Lawrence
