Welcome to Garden Bloggers’ Bloom Day for May 2023.
Where to begin?
Here in my USDA hardiness zone 6a garden in central Indiana, we are frost-free and there are flowers all over the garden.
I posted a reel on Instagram the other day with some of the columbines in bloom but I don’t think I included this lovely pink one that is growing beside a path. Variety? Anyone’s guess.
The columbines are blooming all over the garden, which I like. After they finish flowering, I’ll let them go to seed and then I’m sure to have more next year.
Here are a few other pictures of flowers that caught my eye early on Sunday morning (after two rain showers on Saturday).
I could go on and on showing more flowers… but it would make for much too long of a post and I want to spend time out there enjoying it all, and you want to get to some of the other blogs posting for Garden Bloggers’ Bloom Day.
(By the way, listening to podcasts about gardening while gardening is supposed to make you happier and make your garden grow better. Don’t believe me? Try it! Listen to The Gardenangelists and let me know how it worked!)
It’s easy to join in for this meme. Just post about what’s blooming in or around your garden on the 15th of the month (give or take) and then leave a link in the Mr. Linky widget and a comment to let us know what you have for us to see. All are welcome because…
